The Olympic Experience at the Richmond Oval
North America's first foray into the Olympic Museum Network, this $10-million Richmond gem opened in 2015. Interactivity rules the roost here: visitors can score soccer goals, measure their reaction times, and gauge how much air they catch on jumps. Then they can take to virtual reality simulators to bobsled, kayak, sit-ski, and faux-race in a precision-tuned Formula One car. The Olympic Experience also celebrates the intangible qualities of the planet's best athletes with films about their dreams, drive, and mental preparations. Set in the Oval—the speed-skating rink for the 2010 Winter Games—this attraction is perfect for tiring out kids, while also inspiring them.
