Hopped over here after taking the tram up to Cannon Mountain. Some interesting things here such as Bode Miller olympic medals, old skiis, pictures and memorabilia. Worth going through if you are a skier and there is no charge.

We had a short look at this little museum, free to the public. It had some historical photos, even more interesting old skis and lots of memorabilia, worth a peek!

Free admission is the key since this is a small one room museum. See Bode Miller's Olympic metals and the history of skiing in new Hampshire. Worth the three minute walk from the cannon tramway

This is a small museum/gift shop but if you love skiing it's a great place to visit for 15-30 minutes.

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.

A new, small(ish) museum, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in content. Good displays of old skies, historic activities on the mountain and a great display of Olympic champion Bode Miller's medals. Nicely done, lit well and the staff was very...More
