Chris Liedel Reveals Plan for Olympic Museum in Colorado Springs | RE/MAX Colorado Springs
This week for the RE/MAX Properties, Inc. monthly sales rally we were joined by a very special guest: Chris Liedel, CEO of the brand new US Olympic Museum in Colorado Springs.
There are many reasons to be in love with Colorado Springs. One of them is the fact the city is coined Olympic City USA. With the United States Olympic Training Center situated in the heart of Colorado Springs currently, the city proudly holds this name. However, there are more reasons to be excited about living in of visiting Colorado Springs. With much anticipation comes the United States Olympic Museum.
Chris revealed the final plans, designs, and features of this incredible new asset to the city of Colorado Springs. First of is the great location. Located in the heart of Downtown Colorado Springs means many things for Colorado Springs residents.
Not only will the museum help to revitalize this industrial area of on the Southwest side of Colorado Springs but it is also a very accessible location and it will also yield incredible views of Pikes Peak and the Front Range Rocky Mountains to the west.

Additionally, the museum is expected to bring a significant economic impact to Downtown Colorado Springs. Chris went on to explain some of the new Olympic Museum's features, displays and exhibits. Some of which were simply incredible. Chris explained the entire research process, which, interestingly enough, included in-person research with young Millenials who apparently were able to provide brutally honest feedback which the museum used to consciously build out the museum's exhibits. Of which, includes a series of "selfie moments" built specifically for the popular technique for people taking pictures of themselves and posting them on social media.
One of the "selfie moments" is in the torch room where there are actual Olympic torches from the history of the Olympics. Chris explained how the torch became the symbol of the Olympics in 1936 when the torch relay to Nazi Germany was protested against.
Chris was able to show the room full of RE/MAX Properties, Inc. agents what it will be like to take a trip through the museum. Another "selfie moment" is this incredible display of a larger than life Olympian diver display.
Chris explained how the US Olympic museum has worked closely with the historical archives from NBC. NBC has a plethora of historical footage of the Olympics over the years and museum visitors can access these videos through an interactive video display exhibit allowing visitors to navigate through this amazing collection of medal ceremonies.
Chris explained how the Museum has been designed around the natural environment in a way that really highlights some of the biggest assets surrounding Colorado Springs: The Rocky Mountain Front Range and of course Pikes Peak. He explained how the view of Pikes Peak really drove the design so visitors can enjoy unobstructed views on the nature asset to the west.
We would personally like to thank Chris Liedel and the entire team at the US Olympic Museum for this intimate presentation and for spearheading this incredible asset we are adding to the things to do we have here in Colorado Springs. Thanks Chris!
