  • This attraction is near the Visitor's Center, and (obviously) the Fanny Bridge and the Truckee River. It's a nice building but it's a little hard to fund the entrance. The exhibits are pretty good...

  • Good place to visit while in Tahoe City. Rich local history, Olympic skies, dresses upstairs. First floor American Indian artifacts.

  • The gift shop while small, offers unique items. The curator is friendly and knowledgeable. The grounds offer a nice stroll to the lake's edge and the dam.
  • If you want to see everything about 1960 Winter Olympics this is the place to go. They have a mixture of other items to see as well. There's a great place out behind overlooking the lake where you can sit and eat or fish. The geese are plentiful.
