U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum design recognized by Architectural Digest


As the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum nears opening, it continues to be recognized by industry experts as Architectural Digest listed the Museum among the “leading design-forward museums opening this year.”

The Museum joins others from across the United States and around the world on the list.

Last month, Smithsonian magazine included the Museum among its Most Anticipated Museum Openings of 2020; The New York Times listed the Museum as one of the Places to Go in 2020; and Architectural Digest named the Museum one of the most anticipated buildings of 2020.

Set to open this spring, the 60,000-square foot U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum is dedicated to U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes and their compelling stories, with the artifacts, media and technology behind the athletes who make the United States proud. The Museum will focus on the core values of the Olympic and Paralympic movements: friendship, respect and excellence; determination, equality, inspiration and courage.

The Museum will be one of the most accessible and interactive museums in the United States. Visitors of all abilities will be able to experience the exhibits through inclusive design and assistive technologies such as mobile apps, video captions, audio description tracks, universal keypads, RFID-triggered customizations and more.
