About these ratings

The Winter Olympic Museum is dedicated to not only the 1932 and 1980 Lake Placid Games, but to the Winter Olympics in general. Still, previous guests say that casual fans might get bored. There's not much to the small collection; old uniforms and medals are displayed without protective cases in one crowded room, and the museum can be hard to find. One TripAdvisor user says, "Don't miss the museum if you can find it. It's at the Olympic Center behind a door marked 'Spectators.'"

Located in the Olympic Center on the south side of Mirror Lake in Lake Placid, the museum is open year-round from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is about $6 for adults, $4 for children ages 12 and younger, and seniors 65-plus. For more information, visit the website
