Sprint to the Olympic MuseumColorado Springs, Colorado

Armchair experts who live for the opportunity to talk at length about the intricacies of rhythmic gymnastics and canoe slalom once every four years should plan a visit to Colorado Springs. The huge United States Olympic & Paralympic Museum – a sprawling 5,500 square metre building designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro – opened there in August 2020.

Visitors can follow the history of the Games from ancient Greece to the present day. It’s fully interactive too, so you can imagine what it’s like to enter an arena during the opening ceremony or try your hand at a training program for sledge hockey (ice hockey for players with disabilities). Of course, it’s very much Team USA, but sports nuts will be rapt.
