You don't have to be a sports fan to find this museum to be very interesting. If you're old enough to know/play sports then this place have something for you. The museum offers a number of perspectives related to the Olympics games: from its history, production, relics and so on. I particular liked the collection of mascots, torches, sporting equipment,...

We were on a road trip to go around the whole Lake Geneva and decided to stop at the museum for a quick look before we move on to the next city. It's worth the stop to see and appreciate the the olympic games that have been uniting the countries to build a peaceful and better world through sports.

This museum is great if you have a passion for sports and the history of the Olympics, I would suggest you enter as soon as the doors open due to the museums girth. Each section is separated into the seasonal sports, you have winter, summer, etc. It... More

I had quite a pleasure experience even thought I am not a museum visiting person. The renovation has given it a new look with lots of beautiful video content. Towards the end, you find some realy interesting game to pay for people of all ages. You need approx 1.5 hours and I sure you will not get boared

Our family stayed in the cinema for well over an hour watching some of the incredible stories that have been collected on film. The displays have audio to inform the viewer, there are head sets everywhere so you don't have... More
