Worth the stop. Very consequence of social distancing to enter and in the museum. It was very interesting to see the uniforms through the years a s well as various memorabilia. Being able to go upstairs to see the skating rink was a highlight.

We stayed an extra morning before driving home to visit this little museum. It is only an $8 entrance fee. The man taking the money could not have been friendlier. We stayed about an hour. This included wandering the small museum and then going upstairs to see the arena where Miracle on Ice actually happened. The Zamboni was clearing the ice for an event happening later that day. We did buy a couple things in the gift shop. Only one family unit is allowed in at a time, and throughout the entire museum COVID safety was in place. Although small, we are glad that we visited. We learned a lot about the exciting time when the Olympics came to town. Seeing the smallish crowds in Lake Placid in late October, it was amazing to me to think about the effect of those huge crowds on this small area. Price was more than worth our experience!

The entire museum consists of one small room with some memorabilia and displays. From there you can go upstairs and view the hockey arena from a small area. Besides a small gift shop - that's it! It's "only" $8 but it would be tough to spend more than a half hour there. Pretty disappointing overall.

I always wanted to go to this museum because I always loved the Olympics and this is where history was made twice. I spent about an hour there but expected the museum area to be bigger, overall good experience.
