Seriously a VERY cool museum! It's interesting and interactive. We did one of the private tours with the whole family, 2 kids, the one about the first Olympics, the kids had tons of fun, they loved dressing up and going to the gym and learning about the first Olympic sports played and trying them. Our coach, Eveyln was fantastic. The... More

If you are within an hour of Lausanne make a detour and visit. Very nice museum was about 16euro to visit. There is no parking on site which is horrible but there is a paid parking garage across the street(a little tricky to find) There is a restaurant inside but we didnt partake. Best part of the museum was the... More

What an impressive museum depicting the history of the Olympics, the critical events that happened throughout the years, the achievements of the players as well as displaying the numerous memorabilia belonging to both Summer and Winter Olympics. Divided into 3 different floors, the museum is structured in a way that takes the visitors on a journey. I learned how the... More

An excellent Museum with three well laid out floors charting the origins of the Olympic ideals in Ancient Greece, the beginnings of the modern movement and many recent exhibits from iconic athletes. Where else could you see Jessie Owens' running shoe beside those of Carl Lewis and Lasse Viren. Well worth a visit.

Easy to find once near the lakeside, although not as obvious on the day I went which was when the Lausanne marathon was been set up. Pleasant entrance and walk up to museum itself with some outdoor parts, (was going to have a better look around later but didnt leave myself enough time). Arrived about 1pm and left around 5:30pm...

This museum is a must visit as it's really a fun place to take some pictures and in general browse through the place getting to know a bit of the Olympic history. The day my friends and I went to Lausanne, we visited the museum which has about three floors. You can see many iconic artifacts from medals, torches, &... More

I visited the museum yesterday. It's a must-do! As you walk in through the main entrance, you're able to take in the breathtaking views of the Alps, as well as start the Olympic journey with a few statues and posters that capture the Olympic spirit. The museum is beautifully designed, well lit and well laid out which makes it very... More
