Not a big skiing fan but where else can you see real Olympic medals AND Mussolini's sword. Also lots of small exhibits of general interest. A real find for skiers.

It’s small but if you like skiing history it would be a good visit. It’s on the grounds of the Cannon Mountain Tram so we went in to see Bodie Millers Olympic medals.
