  • 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.

  • A really interesting museum with lots of historical artifacts and also art. It has a really nice view of the lake and many beautiful sculptures outside. There is a discount available for students.
  • I was seriously impressed by this museum. Great information and artefacts from past olympics. Definitely worth the visit - I spent about 3 hours in here. Interactive for children too (ages 6+)
  • Great place to visit while in Lausanne. I do wish the gift shop had a bit more selection!
  • One of the best musuem I've ever been to. The way each exhibit is presented is marvellous. Excellent use of technology.
