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. Enjoy watching 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."
