Richmond Olympic Experience
The ROX, situated in the Richmond Olympic Oval, offers three stories of exhibits and activities focused on various elements of the Olympic Games. Jump into the action with virtual simulations of Olympic race-car driving, ski jumping, bobsledding, white water kayaking, and other sports. Then, move from virtual reality to real life with a set of interactive challenges that test abilities like reaction time, hockey skills, and jumping abilities.
Things to Know Before You Go
The ROX is ideal for Olympics enthusiasts who want to experience the action first-hand.
Bring a jacket—the museum is located near the Oval’s ice rinks.
Admission to the ROX includes access to the Oval’s recreation facilities.
The museum is wheelchair accessible and the activities are adaptable.
How to Get There
Located just a 10-minute drive from Vancouver International Airport and a 20-minute drive from downtown Vancouver, the ROX is easily accessible by car or public transportation. To reach the museum by bus, take the 414 route (Canada Line) from the Brighouse station to the Oval.
When to Get There
The ROX is open from 10am to 5pm every day except Monday. The indoor exhibits are enjoyable year-round, making it a nice place to get out of the elements during a winter visit to Vancouver.
The Richmond Olympic Oval
With your ticket to the ROX, you can also explore the rest of the Richmond Olympic Oval’s state-of-the-art recreation and sports facilities. While the ROX lets you experience the virtual thrills of being an elite Olympic athlete, visiting the rest of the sports complex will let you experience the excitement in real life: Watch athletes train and compete or make use of the Oval’s rock climbing wall, ice rinks, courts, and fitness classes.
