Visitors can learn about the most celebrated personalities in figure skating and experience significant moments in figure skating through films and photographs among many more interactive exhibits and activities. The science behind figure skating jumps is debunked through informative pieces showing how blades and edges affect the physics behind these gravity-defying feats.
Visitors to the World Figure Skating Hall of Fame Museum can also view the world of figure skating through the art of Andy Warhol and other famous artists, including a piece of work painted using figure skates, by skaters. The museum also has a Hall of Fame documenting the people who have made lasting contributions to the sport, both past, and present.
Collections of pins, trophies, old figure skating costumes, and skates are also available for the public to view.
