US Olympic and Paralympic Museum

An inclusive and interactive museum for everyone.

Game Description 
On 30 July 2020 the long-awaited United States Olympic & Paralympic Museum opened. This impressive museum is one of the most accessible museums in the world, offering a world-class experience regardless of physical or cognitive ability.

Located in Colorado Springs, the museum includes 20,000 square metres dedicated to interactive games. Visitors of all abilities are able to experience the games through inclusive design and assistive technologies such as video captions, audio description tracks, universal keypads, sign language and RFID-triggered customisation.

The RFID-powered interactives seamlessly deliver a customised experience for each guest as they organically adapt to each persons’ unique selections and accessibility requirements. At the Athlete Training gallery visitors test their speed, agility, strength, and endurance through full-body manipulatives and digital interactive games, inviting visitors to participate in different Olympic and Paralympic sports.

At each of the games, visitors be shoulder to shoulder with Team USA athletes. They compete alongside these heroes as they simulate athletic training in any number of sports, ranging from skiing to sledge hockey—ice hockey for players with disabilities—in the museum’s interactive galleries. Visitors can sprint against a US athlete, test their archery skills by pointing a physical bow, steer a skeleton sled with their body and train their reaction time by playing goalball.

Visitors can also interview an athlete by asking questions of their choice to virtual Olympic and Paralympic athletes. Paralympian Matt Scott, wheelchair basketball superstar, answers over 2000 questions using artificial intelligence powered technology.

The experience will immerse visitors in the intensity of high-level competition through the lens of the athletes who have trained, competed and won. The experience will forever change people’s perception and appreciation for the dedication, motivation, determination, and sacrifice all Olympians and Paralympians share.
