The United States Olympic & Paralympic Museum is a historical and cultural sports museum that recognizes Olympic and Paralympic athletes who have represented the United States. First opened just last year in 2020, the museum features a set of Olympic torches, artwork, and interactive sports demonstrations. We have coordinated a guided tour of the museum starting at 1:30 PM. The museum is only a 10-minute walk from the Antlers Hotel, so we will walk there before the tour starts. The tour will last about an hour and afterwards you can explore your museum on your own, visit the gift shop or café, or walk back to The Antlers before the evening sessions begin.
