We aren't skiers, had just come off the mountain after doing the gondola and saw it. It is interesting with some Olympic medals on display and I LOVED all the old photographs of people and athletes at play.

This is an interesting, well put-together, small museum at the tram base of Cannon Mountain. Lots of cool and historic memorabilia; kind of like stepping back in time. There are Olympic medals won by Bode Miller on display which is very cool. Enjoy.

The museum was terrific. Small enough to cover in an hour. The staff was helpful. They explained a path we could take to walk back to the Cannon Mt base despite it being very cold and warning us it may be a tretcherous journey.

I was there today. The admission is free of charge. You can see the history of the sport and also the transformation of the equipment. Worthy to see!

This place has everything about skiing since the 30's, clothing, equipment, Bodie Miller's Olympic medals. Truly worth a visit if you have an interest in skiing.

This museum would be a must see for skiers and is interesting enough for non-skiers like us for a quick look-see. The museum visit starts with a short introductory video on skiing and then you could browse through exhibits which chronicles the history of skiing...More

The old sky lift outside of the facility and the vintage ski's were neat to see. If you are a skier, it's a quick neat stop.

This was a free add on to the Aerial tramway and was worth the extra 15 minutes. There is interesting memorabilia, a short film and helpful friendly staff.
