Olympic Experience at the Richmond OvalNorth America’s first foray into the Olympic Museum Network, this $10 million Richmond gem opened in 2015. Here, it’s all about interactivity—visitors can score goals, gauge their reaction times, and measure how much air they catch on jumps. Then, they can take to virtual reality simulators to bobsled, kayak, ski, and race in a precision-tuned Formula 1 car. Other highlights include the Olympic Experience, which celebrates the world’s best athletes through film, and the Oval, which functioned as the speed-skating rink during the 2010 Winter Games.
