The excitement and wonder of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics lives on in the hearts and minds of Vancouverites, and next weekend you can relive the glory at the BC Sports Hall of Fame and Museum with their special Red Mitten Weekend in honour of the second anniversary of the Vancouver Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Red Mitten Weekend runs February 11 – 12, 2012, and offers half-priced admission all weekend, plus free admission for the first 25 kids wearing their 2010 Olympics red mittens. It’s a chance to see the new additions to the museum made during its remodeling (which coincided with the remodeling of BC Place), including the new Vancouver 2010 / Olympic Inspirations Gallery, the new Hall of Champions (an interactive exhibit on BC’s sports’ legends), the new special exhibit “The Dream Card” Hockey Card Collection, and the new Our Teams/Our Turf Gallery featuring the Vancouver Whitecaps and BC Lions.

Now they have released a summer version, featuring some of the Canadian athletes who received medals at the Games, as well as some of the beautiful scenery this province has to offer. Check it out below!
