“What it lacks in size it makes up in history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Take a trip back in time and immerse yourself in the 1980 and 1932 Olympics. The venues have changed since these simple times but you will still be riveted and impressed when you see our amateur US hockey team win the gold medal.

“so-so”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

It is worth a quick look on your way to white face mountain. You can take a quick peek at the ice rink and check out information on past (winter) olympians.

“Updated museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

This museum has recently had a facelift which makes it inviting. You can see the winter Olympic medals, torches, and view a video of the 1980 Russian-US hockey game.
