Museum promotion  

LAKE PLACID — This coming week, June 10-16, is the second annual New York State Museum Week. I Love New York and museums throughout the Empire State have joined together to give visitors the opportunity to discover museums and the one-of-a-kind personal experience they offer.

During Museum Week, the Lake Placid Olympic Museum, located in the Olympic Center, will be offering visitors buy-one, get-one-free admission, as well as a 10-percent discount on selected museum store merchandise.

The museum is the only Olympic museum in the United States. It is also the second largest of its kind world-wide, trailing only the Olympic museum in Luzerne, Switzerland.

While the Lake Placid Olympic Museum highlights both the Lake Placid 1932 and 1980 Olympic Winter Games, it also features memorabilia from every Olympic Winter Games dating back to 1924, including the first-ever winter Olympic medal awarded, to American speed skater and Lake Placid native Charles Jewtraw. Other displays include several mascots and torches from several summer and winter Olympics, memorabilia from three-time Olympic figure skating champion Sonja Henie and memorabilia from the 1980 U.S. Miracle on Ice hockey team.

Admission to the Lake Placid Olympic Museum is $7 for adults, $5 for seniors and juniors (12 and under), and free for children 6 and under. Admission to the museum is also included in the purchase of the Olympic Sites Passport and Gold Pass.
