MEDAL COLLECTION

The final marquee exhibit in the Museum is also from the Crawford Family U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Archives – a nearly-complete collection of Olympic medals.

Crawford Family U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Archives

Since the beginning of the modern Olympic Games, medals have been used to award the champions of each event. Though they have evolved greatly in size, shape, color, texture, and material over time, the Olympic and Paralympic medals still carry the same significance and meaning they always have: the best of the best.
