The Olympic Museum is paying homage to the men and women who celebrate and live the Olympic ideal: the athletes of course, but also the creators, the architects, the volunteers and all those people who undertake to bring the dream of Coubertin alive every two years and do so in a fresh way each time.
It is undoubtedly the best-known Lausanne museum throughout the world. Completely revamped exhibition areas, themes revisited, nearly twice as much exhibition space, more reception facilities, a newly landscaped park… This brand-new museum is now ready to welcome visitors.
The Olympic Park
Accessible from Ouchy quay, the Olympic Park features:
A mix of nature, works of art and sports installations given an artistic makeover.
Exceptional panoramic views of Lake Geneva and the Alps.
A real athletics track allowing visitors to imagine they are competing against the last Olympic 100m champion.
The permanent exhibition is spread over 3 levels with more than 1,000 objects and 150 screens:
Each level revisits an essential aspect of the modern Olympic movement, from its origins to the heart of competitions, finding out about Olympians along the way by means of an interactive dialogue.
An area of discoveries, memories and emotions.
Two rooms equipped with the latest teaching resources allow groups of young people to participate in educational workshops
