The U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Museum will be a premier international cultural destination, welcoming people of all ages and backgrounds, to come together in the spirit of the Olympic Games. The Museum will be highly interactive, featuring 20,000 square feet of exhibition space, a state-of-the-art theater, broadcast studio, and Hall of Fame. Visitors will journey through engaging, highly interactive exhibits which share the history of the Olympic Games, the stories of the greatest U.S. Olympians and Paralympians, and the latest science and technology behind their training. The Museum promises a chance to test your own physical prowess, experiencing first-hand, the rigors of athletic competition and fortitude of Team USA, along with a unique opportunity to march into the pulsating, adrenaline charged opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games, a highlight of an athlete’s career.

A few minutes away from the new Museum, the Colorado Springs Olympic Training Center will offer visitors a companion experience: an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look into the daily lives and training regimens of America’s Olympic and Paralympic athletes.

An all-encompassing experience, the U.S. Olympic Museum will be a timeless institution that reflects the thrill and spirit of the Games and our pride in Team USA.

Like the athletes themselves, the Museum’s goal is not simply to match expectations, but to exceed them.

  • Friendly knowledgeable staff walked us through using RFID and stylus. Started on 3rd floor worked our way down through interactive displays, stylus (pen) used to access information easy to use. 10 minute theater showing brought me to tears. Special effect rooms, clean very clean. Torches from Olypics and other historical momentous articles behind glass. Some items are not behind glass. The lighting is incredible as you lose where you are, in a good way. Excellent gift shop and on site restaurant. Keepsake and more.
  • Brand new high tech interactive We were able to get tickets easily online for a Saturday. They had only been open 1.5 weeks! Able to park for free on the street as the parking meters have not yet been installed. Parking in their lot will be $6 Lots of staff on hand to direct you and get you checked in. Multi steps to get you set up and a demo to make sure your badge is working. Then you take an elevator to the top floor and work your way down through the history of the Olympics and interactive areas where you can try several sports. Very well done and lots of staff to assist and answer questions.
