Very cool stuff here! Not just artifacts from 1932 and 1980- all Olympics! We loved the big raccoon on display!
The tour by Jack Rogers was a treat and an amazing source of local information and about the history of the Olympics at Lake Placid. This was the best activity of the trip.
Moderately priced entry-fee, great memorabilia, you can watch almost the entire Miracle on Ice hockey game. Loved all of the posters from all of the Winter Olympics games. A nice activity to end several days of fun in Lake Placid.
A very small museum, and a bit dated, but if you are on your way to see the "Miracle" rink, take a quick look through.
Cool place to visit and learn about the Olympic history of the area. The artifacts are neat to see as well. Young or old, there is enough there to entertain you.

Went to Museum in the middle of the week. It was virtually empty as was the miracle on ice stadium. It is a very little museum, with the emphasis on little, but it was full of very interesting memorabilia from all Winter games. As there was nothing going on in the hockey stadium we were able to go wherever we... More
Small but you cannot help feel the history while in this facility. The simulator is pretty cool, and the various history displayed throughout are great reminders of past Olympians and their accomplishments.
