An all-new Museum is being designed and constructed!

Our new spaces will inspire awe. Until we open in late 2022, a temporary Exhibit Gallery is on display on the second floor of the Lake Placid Conference Center.

The temporary exhibit entitled “Totally 80s: 80 Heirlooms from the 80 Olympics” is FREE for all guests.

With the renewal of the Olympic Center nearing completion, Museum staff are excited to bring Lake Placid’s remarkable history into a bold new future. The flame of inspiration burns brightly, giving rise to a new Museum experience that will ignite the courage in all of us to dream and do.

We look forward to welcoming you into our future spaces where the boundless spirit of Olympic Champions will kindle new perspectives on our world.
