The exhibition is clearly organized and covers many aspects of the Olympic movement represent. My kids liked the many interactive monitors where they themselves could linger. The building is architecturally a stunner; only the ramp that winds upward. Remember that on the 2nd floor "TOM Café" with a beautiful terrace and a view that is almost kitsch. Only point to the complain: it's all unfortunately only labeled French or English.show original

Having refurbished it not long ago, the museum is excellent. If you take care in reading all info signs, you'll have a 4h visit ahead of you. The temporary exhibition on the Rio games is superb. Nice prices, good souvenir shop, clean and easy to navigate.
Very very informative and interactive. Its a brilliant place.. the history.. the passion.. the dedication.. from the torches.. to the stadiums. To the opening ceremonies.. to the sport.. very creative and brilliant..
Really great. One of the must of Lausanne. Is also good for children.
Nice place to visit in Lausanne. Amazing view of the nature from muséum :)
When I first walk into the museum, I was expecting a tourist trap. But it is far from that. It is amazingly well done. And after the renew works, it is even better. They show it all: history, great moments, modern games... And very interactive! Really worth the visit! And the best brunch in Lausanne (during weekends).
