  • Visit the Museum: very good quality/price ratio. Visit to understand the origin of the Olympic Games; their discount in place in the 19th century but also to get to know the names of the champions, all sports. No audio guide planned but the explanatory texts for each topic. Opportunity to see the Olympic Stadium and the open camp (Olympic Park) for free.

  • Said Samaranch was the face of the Olympic Games. Within the Olympic and sport Museum can meet players of yesteryear the nostalgic. Bills such as Nadia Comaneci, Michael Jordan, Muhammad Ali and used goods are exhibited.

  • We walked a lot in Barcelona - it's the way we like to explore. After quite a walk to the Olympic stadium I'm pleased to say it was well worth it... Though I hoped to see the pool also but that was hi...  more »

  • Interesting exhibits with a lot to see however needs improvements/updates. Could be an A+ museum with some updates. Perhaps things are lost in translation but Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and others were not known as the "3 Monsters", Basketball was invented in the USA (even if Naismith was born and raised in Canada), while very talented with a great career I don't believe Mia Hamm is the greatest soccer/football player in history. There is very little on the winners for the 92 Olympics that aren't of Spanish/Catalan descent. Only a small blurb and fuzzy picture of the Dream Team, however there is a giant picture and a video of Joe Montana playing in the Super Bowl (American Football is not an Olympic sport). The admission price was very reasonable though (5.10 in Euros) and it was very quiet and not at all crowded inside.
  • Moderately inaccurate facts about most north american sports. Not a lot of mention of cricket considering its global popularity. The amount of information severely declines after the 2008 olympics. Not much about London, Brazil, Sochi, and Vancouver. Barely mentioned the 1972 Munich hostage crisis. Kind of funny that they don't consider ice hockey to be Canada's favorite sport. Overall it was good, could use some improvements.
  • Interesting sport museum, the main focus is the Olympics but has some information on other areas too.
  • Important place with free entry and many beautiful places
  • Good Museum , lots of stuff on Barcelona 1992 and temporary exhibition on Rio 2016 and has nearly all the Olympic torches
