The Sapporo Winter Sports Museum is an Olympic Museum located at the Mt. Okura Ski Jump Stadium in Sapporo, Hokkaido. The museum displays exhibits on the Olympic Medalists, the International Miyasama Ski Games, and the Winter Universiade. Located at the site for the former 1972 Winter Olympics, the Winter Sports Museum is a great place to learn about the events and past champions of the Winter Olympics.
The museum has a few interactive exhibits for guests, including a ski jumping simulator and speed skating simulator. The museum also has a theater which offers an animated 3-D video on the art of skiing and skating, as well as a video on the Winter Olympic Highlights. Unlike some museums in Japan, Hokkaido's Sapporo Winter Sports Museum offers nine languages for tourists from international backgrounds to enjoy the exhibits. There's also a small gift shop, restaurants, and cafes nearby to enjoy the museum. Given the proximity from the museum to the ski jump, it's highly recommended for tourists to take a trip to the top of the ski jump stadium.
If you or your family are aspiring Olympians, fans of winter sports, or just looking to learn more about Japan's unique global history, the Sapporo Winter Sports Museum may be the perfect destination for your holiday travels.
