This exhibition highlights the sporting, economic and wellbeing opportunities generated by the Games, the journey of the Paralympics movement and the remarkable changes to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Visitors can take a selfie with the London 2012 Mascot, Wenlock, re-live the glory of Team GB and ParalympicsGB triumphs, see medals, the Olympic and Paralympic torches and part of the Olympic cauldron.

Also on show will be one of the jackets worn at the Paralympics Opening Ceremony, decorated with printed text from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and conceptual models for the opening of the Paralympic Games.

The exhibition takes visitors on a journey from that summer of sport in 2012 through all the achievements since then, and focuses on what is to come in terms or sport, housing, jobs and opportunities for communities. It overlooks the track at Lee Valley VeloPark track where, in 2012, Great Britain dominated, winning more medals in track cycling than any other country.

The new exhibition has been organised by Lee Valley Regional Park Authority, the London Legacy Development Corporation and the National Paralympic Heritage Trust, all having played major roles in the success of the Games’ legacy.
