“Small”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

This is a small museum. It has some items from The Miracle on Ice game- but it was small- and had some interesting stuff:)

“Wonderful stop for all ages!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

My bridesmaid and I stopped in here the day before my wedding to relax a little bit, and boy was it worth it! I am a sports fan and she is not, but both of us found plenty to be interested in! The memorabilia they have is amazing, and the staff was knowledgeable and kind. The museum is small so younger children would probably enjoy it since it doesn't take much time, but I would not suggest extremely young kids as there are a lot of things that are open but should not be touched.

Highly recommend!

“little museum, lots of history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

My husband and I really enjoyed this little museum. We are both big Olympic fans, so we loved looking at the artifacts and reading the info (not an overwhelming amount of reading). There was a feeling that this musem was put together with pride and love by the members of the Lake Placid community. We learned a lot and had fun reminding ourselves about Olympics in the recent past!!

“Must be seen in person!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

It was awesome to see the small 1932 hockey rink, and then go look at the 1980 hockey rink. Just thinking of the history behind these two places gave me goosebumps.

“Interesting but not a must see.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Went to the museum with young family. There were interesting displays of clothing, medals and other pieces of history. Nothing for the kids to do. I wouldn't recommend going unless you stumble upon it. Not quite worth the $6.00 admission.
