Very interesting

This is a great museum, far more interesting and entertaining than you would imagine! Lots of memorabilia from the sports stars we all know, and some great interactive games.

You don't have to be an athlete to appreciate the Olympic Museum. History buffs will have plenty to see and there are exhibits for all ages. Some are very nostalgic as they remind one of the fashions, news events and famous athletes that television coverage of more modern Olympic Games brought to us.

You cant go to Lausanne without visiting the Olympic Museum. It would be like going to Rome and not seeing St Peter's! Very good museum with lots of Olympic history, memorabilia and activities. Make sure you read through the interactive screens as there is a lot of Olympic nostalgia that many, including myself, would not be aware of. Well worth... More

A visit to Lausanne would not be complete, without seeing the Olympic museum. It is relatively easy to find, located on Quai dOuchy, which runs along the banks of Lake Geneva (Leman). The museum itself is located at the top of the hill, so be warned it is a relatively steep climb up the steps (I suspect will be a... More

The Olympic Museum is located by Lake Geneva, and the walk from the any of the nearby parking lots or metro station is beautiful already. There are a few stairs to take to the entrance, so if you go on a clear day you'll have beautiful views of the lake and the mountains. The museum itself is well-designed and very... More

We spent about 2 hours at the Olympic museum. It highlights different aspects of the olympics. There was something for everyone here. It starts with the building of olympic stadiums and what all is involved, the middle floor offers a display of equipment and clothing worn by olympic athletes, as well as a brief look at some of the athletes....
