This was my second visit and it did not disappoint. I had the same problem as the first visit over 15 years previously; working out where to park. I have it worked out now; use the underground car park on the lake front and walk from there. So next time there will no delays and I can enjoy the many... More

Visited with three kids and they a very enjoyable day. Plenty of things for them to see and do. We went upstairs for lunch in the cafe which had a gorgeous view. It was pricey but then it is Switzerland so to be expected. All in all, definitely worth a visit.

The location, by the lake, is amazing, there are some places to picnic, the garden is fantastic within awesome statues related to the Olympics, and inside everything is just spectacular. The only restriction is the price, but it worth.

In a lovely area of Lausanne, surrounded by a manicured park and overlooking Lake Geneva, the Olympic Museum is an inspiring must-see. Beautiful displays. Great for all ages. Unique modern setup. Relive Olympic history. Just go to the Lausanne main train station; take the metro to Ouchy, and walk to the museum.

This is a great place to visit; with kids or just anyone. Beautifully laid out - gives you a wonderful overview of the Olympic movement . The setting of the museum couldn't be nicer.

Everything is there: The history of the olympics, the torches, the medals, the costumes, the equipment, video coverage, and more. I loved it. I spent an hour there and wished I had at least another hour or two. A cafe and gift store is on site. Nice posters to buy among other things. Worth the time.

The Olympic museum lies in a beautiful park above the shores of lake Geneva in Lausanne with its own bus stop and ship landing. If you are interested in sports and the development of the Olympics from ancient Greece to present day you will love this museum. I would recommend to spend the CHF 5.- for the audio guide because...

Interesting museum, worth spending a few hours exploring (even if you are not much into sport). Great place for kids as there are lots of interactive exhibits.
