It's free, but donations are accepted. Small museum with lots of historical information. Very quaint and worth a look. Good gift shop.

Our daughter absolutely loved this. She enjoyed the exhibits and historical learning aspects. Of course reading about the Olympics and seeing the old pictures was neat for her. Gift shop lured her too.

I do not know the address, but it is above the Vail Parking Garage. There is a set of stairs facing Vail Village, about 3 flights going up to the Transportation Center and the Museum is at the top of those stairs.
