Whether you are a history buff interested in learning more about the 1980 boycott or an artist looking to explore new art forms, the Museum has something for everyone!

The U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum is one of the most accessible and inclusive museums in the world. Guests can customize their sport preferences and accessibility needs for a tour that is uniquely their own.

Check out our programming below for all the extracurricular activities you can take part in at the Museum this September.

Museum shifting to fall/winter pricing and hours of operation after Labor Day

The United States Olympic & Paralympic Museum will transition to fall/winter pricing and modified hours of operation after Labor Day. During this period, regular admission fees will be reduced, and the museum will be open for general and group visitation Thursdays through Mondays. Groups may also pre-arrange visits on Tuesday and Wednesdays.

Curator Collection, 1936 Olympic Games // Members only

September 14 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Join us for a look back on the Berlin and Garmisch-Partenkirchen 1936 Olympic Games with our extensive collection of souvenirs collected by spectators who experienced the Games firsthand. While these 1936 Games were innovative for creating the first Olympic torch and torch relay, the pageantry and publicity were used as propaganda by the host, Nazi Germany. Learn more about these Olympic Games and get a closer look at items that are not on display, such as Jesse Owens’ autograph, programs, tickets, scrapbooks and more.

Members will have the opportunity to visit our 1936 Games display case after the presentation, in addition to visiting the Americans and the Holocaust traveling exhibition at the Pikes Peak Library District’s East Library.
