Make the Lake Placid Olympic Museum your first stop on a tour of America's Olympic hometown and be inspired by the stories of the Winter Games. Located in the same building as the 1980 "Miracle on Ice" hockey game, the excitement of the Olympics...more

My 16-year old son and I enjoyed our visit to the museum. It is small but chock full of information and artifacts. We were able to explore the Herb Brooks and 1932 ice rinks and they sell a nice selection of souvenirs. Perfect experience on...More
Would you like to see lots of Olympic memorabilia? Jerseys worn by all the winter athletes, Sonia Heiney’s skating outfits, flags, sleds, videos, and more. Read Kerberos Brook’s famous speech to his team of college kids and amateurs about to face the Russian national team,...More
