Olympic and Paralympic Museum to Open in Colorado

The U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum, which opens this spring in Colorado Springs, Colorado, celebrates the international sports events with interactive exhibits, galleries, and cutting-edge digital content. A 40-foot video screen runs movie overviews of the summer and winter Olympic Games, the Parade of Nations, and the accomplishments of athletes such as snowboarder/skateboarder Shaun White. 

Visitors can see exhibits honoring 154 Hall of Fame inductees as well as a complete collection of Olympic torches, including the one Muhammad Ali used to light the cauldron in Atlanta in 1996. The 60,000-square-foot facility also houses a collection of competition medals plus artifacts such as five-time Olympic champion Bonnie Blair’s speed skates, the 1980 U.S. vs. Russia Miracle on Ice scoreboard, and three-time Paralympic medalist Amy Purdy’s custom snowboard.
