Lake Placid Olympic Museum

 Come visit the only Olympic museum in North America that interprets the stories of two Olympic Winter Games – 1932 and 1980. We have an extensive collection of Olympic material including items that display Lake Placid's rich sports history from 1895 to present. Our displays and exhibits will bring to life the memories and accounts of Olympic achievement through the years. As you journey throughout the museum to see our many treasures, make sure you take some time to watch the never-released historical footage of the 1980 Miracle on Ice hockey game.  This activity and many others are FREE with your Olympic Sites Passport!
