"Whisper of Love", the large bronze statue of Renee Roca and Gorsha Sur, in the lower level of the museum.
Another view of the Roca & Sur bronze. The museum's library is located behind the trophy case on the right, and the area on the left is the Scott Hamilton display (with a bunch of his medals visible in the case mounted on the wall).
Smaller bronze statue of a pair doing an inside death spiral. I thought this was surely modeled after Oleg and Ludmila Protopov, inventors of the move, but am told that it's not supposed to portray anyone specifically.
Pasha Grishuk's costume and lilac-colored skates, from the 1998 Olympics.
Kristi Yamaguchi's costume and gold medal from the 1992 Olympics.
Large painting by 1976 Olympic bronze medalist Toller Cranston. (I really should have taken this one at a higher resolution to capture more of the detail....)
Old engraving showing six basic skating positions. Note especially #6.
