“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.

“Do You Believe in Miracles?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Relive the 1980 Olympics and even see some legends you may have heard of from 1932! A nice selection of medals and torches from past Olympics. Allow time after the museum to go upstairs to view the famous Ice Arena and even buy some souvenirs.
