Olympic Museum receives $3,000 grant

LAKE PLACID – The Lake Placid Olympic Museum has received a $3,000 state Get Set grant to retain the services of a museum specialist.

The money will be used to hire Linda Norris to assist in developing an interpretive plan for the museum. The Get Set grant, from the New York State Council on the Arts, is administered by the Museum Association of New York.

Norris is an independent museum professional who has worked with museums, historic sites and other cultural organizations for more than a decade. She has managed exhibition development for organizations and has created innovative connections with museums and their communities.

Norris will assist in facilitating conversations with families, students and teachers, provide guidance in the development of a visitor survey and help the museum draft an interpretive plan.

The interpretive plan is one step in the strategic plan for the Lake Placid Olympic Museum adopted by its board of directors. It will help meet the goal of developing a clear framework for planning and implementing future exhibitions and programs to engage visitors.

The Lake Placid Olympic Museum is located at the Olympic Center in Lake Placid, New York. It is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
