The Museum holds the most extensive collection of figure skating materials in the world. The video and film collection, consisting of over 3,500 items, dates from the 1920's and includes Sonja Henie's 1928 Olympic performance. Competition records for national, international and Olympic events are available from the mid-19th century to the present. Collections also include the only complete collection in the world of Der Eissport, an early German newspaper dedicated entirely to skating results and skating history. Approximately 2,000 protocols are preserved as an important historical record of the sport of figure skating.
The photograph collection of nearly 20,000 images includes many early tintype and glass negatives. Nearly 1,500 books in more than a dozen languages form the backbone of the Museum's library, along with complete sets of North American and European magazines, newspapers, scrapbooks, private letters, programs, sheet music and historical greeting cards.
Collections are available for study. For more information, please contact the Museum Archives at (719) 635-5200 or email museum archivist, firstname.lastname@example.org.
