New England Ski Museum

The goal of the New England Ski Museum is to collect, preserve, and exhibit ski history and the 10th Mountain Division. Located in Franconia Notch, it was the site of early ski history such as the first resort ski school to teach Alpine skiing, and now exhibits a chronological development of 8,000 years of skiing. Visitors to the museum may enjoy films, Olympic medals, displays on the 10th Mountain Division, vintage ski suits, and more. Located in close proximity to the Flume Gorge and Tramway, the Ski Museum makes a great stop on a multi-destination field trip.
