Opening Ceremonies

Welcoming visitors to the George Eccles 2002 Olympic Winter Games Museum are the bigger-than-life buffalo, beaver, horse, and eagle puppets that amazed spectators at the Opening and Closing ceremonies in February, 2002. A widescreen TV provides an overview of the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, while nearby a "Child of Light" holds a lantern depicting the theme of the 2002 Winter Games, "Light the Fire Within."
