Visited with my toddler. You can pretty much touch, climb and jump on everything which made it a great trip with a little one. Highly recommend. It was interesting to look at all the memorabilia as well as interact with the exhibits.

6 Euro entry per adult and was well worth it. Along with the standard museum exhibitions and info there was parts where you could give bits a go. Would recommend on a rainy day! Plus next door is a chocolate museum!

Really, really interesting! We spent several hours reading the plaques and looking at all the sports memorabilia! We learned a lot and really enjoyed it.

This shows the history of the Olympics from ancient Greece to modern day. It's next to the chocolate museum and it's pretty inexpensive, so I thought it was worth it, but otherwise if you're not interested in sports and won't receive the college student discount...More

I'm a massive sports fan so I was looking forward to seeing this place. It's literally next to the chocolate museum so you can combine the two visits, maybe getting a bit of lunch in between. The interpretation in this place is very old-fashioned, involving...More

This seemingly small museum is packed full of history and hands on fun. Pieces and information about the history of the Olympic’s origins, German athletes and other major sporting events are scattered throughout the museum. Mixed in are hands on experiences, like gymnastics equipment, a...More

Fantastic idea, great knowledge and real treasures, but the place does not fit the content and our time. Stuff: bored, tired, but angry. Needs new leaders. If it is a hot day, do not dare to enter. The cage is also boiling. No medals. Children...More
