WINTER GAMES

The Olympic and Paralympic Games bring us not only some of the top athletic achievements in sports, but they are also some of the most important moments in history. 

The Winter Games gallery is dedicated to telling specific stories of winter sports, relying on physical and digital elements to do so.

In these galleries, guests find historically significant artifacts and have the chance to see the RFID and digital technology come to life.

Winter Games Gallery - Sports

The gallery contains an interactive wall with in-depth information on each Olympic and Paralympic sport, so guests learn about their current favorite sports and leave with new ones.

Miracle on Ice Scoreboard in the Winter Games Gallery

The 1980 Winter Olympic Games were hosted by Lake Placid for the second time. Team USA’s surprise 4-3 victory over the Soviet Union’s men’s ice hockey team was one of the greatest upsets in Olympic history.

This gold medal win was coined the “Miracle on Ice” and one of the scoreboard panels from that game is on display for guests to see during their visit to the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum. Learn more about this exciting moment in Olympic history.
