We always enjoy watching the Olympics but definitely weren't aware of the amazing history behind the games (and their revival) as well as all the planning/detail that goes into so much of the games (like the torches, medals, resident dorms). We enjoyed wandering through the museum, looking at all of the artifacts they'd collected from games, and watching things on... More

An unassuming museum, this was more interesting and informative than I expected. the displays were well laid out and very informative. When in Lausanne you have to visit.

it's very interactive and you do get emotional through some videos. Also very interactive for the kids. The park is beautiful and the views are amazing.

Great museum for Olympic lovers. It was really fun to see the medals and torches from previous Olympics and to learn about the history. It was fun to see artifacts from famous Olympians and had a lot of cool interactive exhibits. Check if your travel pass gives you any discounts.

Great to see the history of the olympic sports. A well organised place and fun to go around when you have nothing much to do.

It is so easy to loose yourself in this place! I used the audio-guide to frame my visit and it added so much to the already incredibly informative displays. I spent four hours here, although it could be done in far less, taking in all the exhibits - from torches to medals to family history of the founder of the... More

I'm so suprised after visit in this modern museum. The place with many interesting facts shows the whole beauty of Olympic Games. You can also play some mini games and see sportsmen's meals. If you are in Lausanne, you should go to Olympic Museum first.

We visited this because there was a hot day outside and we couldn't endure it anymore. It turned out to be a truly enjoyable visit with plenty thing to see throughout the Olympic history. There were all the Olympic torches from the beginning, Olympic equipment, miniature stadiums, screenings, and a lot of facts about the games. Don't forget to check... More

My husband and I were staying pretty close to the museum so we stopped by to walk around the grounds. This review is not for the actual museum - we decided not to pay to go in. We just walked around outside and enjoyed looking at the displays that showed the olympic records. I especially enjoyed racing Bolt down a... More
