In short, Musee Olympique is a must visit attraction. Nice, fun and full of memories. Also for me as an Iraqi, the image and biography of the Iraqi-British architecture Zaha Hadid on a screen in the museum made this attraction more attractive

First of all, we really find this museum attrative in its own way, they have this wide screen play this short movie that really moving, we can feel the intensity of all the athletes practicing for several months even years, just to display it few mins in a game, bueautifully cruel. And of course there is also a complete set... More

A very interesting place to visit. Very interactive for the children. A very good family outing ! You can easily spend hours there depending on your interests. They did a fantastic job with the new lay out and display. Every one in the family take what they want really. A nice cafe with a stunning view and very close to... More

The Olympic Museum is nice. If you want to save a few bucks, you can just stay outside and explore. It's fun for the kids to do the mock running track.

We went there together with our kids (7 and 9 years old) and enjoyed this museum a lot, and we are not sport fanatics. Especially the history of the Olympics is explained extremely well and has many modern interactive displays. The kids loved it and we all learnt a lot! We also went to see the exhibition about the media... More

I went to the Olympic Museum with two of my children. It was a great experience to learn about the history of the Olympics. The surroundings were fabulous, the view to the lake wonderful. The museum was very well taken care. The personnel very friendly. My children specially enjoyed the 100m run outside.

This museum exhales sports, perfection of the mind and body from every corner. It is very interactive, displaying all of the Olympic Games of the modern age and even displays how they are connected with the old Greek Olympic Games. You can view all the Olympic torches, the stadiums, the marketing material, the wardrobes used, pretty much every thing you... More

The Museum is placed on the Lake shore and offers, first of all, a very good view on the Lake and the French side of the Lake. On the outside, there are sculptures and olympic competition tools & lanes that will help you immerse in the atmosphere, while walking in the magnificent garden. The Museum is very well organised, displaying... More
