This is a place worth a visit since it has been renovated in 2013. The environment is beautiful, facing the Lake Leman. One can reach the new building, either walking up the steps or through a gentle path on the side. Inside, the exhibition follows a chronological order and there are quite a few games for children and adults. The... More

Went to the Olympic Museum with my son who was a Games Maker at London 2012. The setting is beautiful on the shore of Lake Geneva. The first port of call was the café which was busy despite being on skeleton staff between Christmas and New Year. The menu is limited and not particularly interesting. My son loved the exhibition.... More

I've visited this museum 3 times and every time I like it more and more. A good way of visiting it is to use the iPod guided tour. Worth visiting it if you're in Lausanne.

Very modern and interactive museum, which almost reminded me of some scientific education centers I've visited before. I think children would love it too. So many interesting facts of different Olympic sports, doping, 3D movies, sports equipment and sports clothing used in Olympics, all the medals, Olympic torches... The museum is located in the extremely beautiful setting right next to... More

Probably the best museum of the Geneva lake Riviera! One advice: Go early when there is not too many people and take your time. It is worth it! Interactive and very interesting.
