Great for families interested in hockey and Olympic history. Spent a good hour here. It's small but packed with great things.

“Fantastic!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

Visited the site while CAN-AM games were underway. It was a great experience watching the young ones play hockey knowing the future NCAA and NHL greats were out on the ice. It has a great feeling to be there with all the history from past Olympics hosted here. Well done and a must see if in the area.

“Super small, but nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

This little museum is a quick, cute visit. It's pretty much only one room, but there is a lot jammed into that one room. Good information; good memorablilia. This town thrives on the fact that it has hosted the olympics, so you should make a trip to it, in honor of that.
