  • Museumer is not what it says at the top of my list when I'm on vacation, but this is worth the trip. Very nice, large and varied exhibition. Something for everyone, both large and small. Would certainly claim that it is also an exciting museum for children. Feel free to take a visit again!

  • I arrived late and it was already closed, but only see it on the outside is already worthwhile. Overlooking the Lake with privileged view of the snow-capped Alps, garden with innovative statues related to sport, beautiful building. The next visit it, but the ride was worth.

  • One of the best museums I've seen. I really love the stories and the whole experience. You get a bit of history of the Olympic games, a well as fun anecdotes, bits of science and, most importantly, a lot of motivation. The full field of view video makes you feel like you're in a race during the Olympics. Very accessible prices, about 15 CHF for students. And you can easily spend 5 hours in there without getting bored.
  • Fantastic! Spent hours in this place. Great experience to learn more about the history and beauty of the Olympic Games. The interactive exposition outside is amazing for "kids" of all ages.
  • It is a place that every Olympic games fan should visit. The journey in the museum begins with the very first Olympics which were held in the ancient Greece, with many interactive videos and continues with the modern Olympics starting with Athens 1896 games, till today. I thing there should be more memorabilias from the athletes. Great experience.
  • Great place to visit if you are in Lausanne with a view on the lake! I was not super excited about the museum initially but they really made a big focus on the olden grec games which I found amazing.
  • It was so good, every thing about it is exceptional, we almost spend a day thr. Still didnt explore everything. If u love sports, thts ur destination.
