Kicking ourselves that we arrived too late to tour. The things on the exterior are so interesting I can only imagine how great the information inside must be. Maybe next time!

The museum previously was traditional and a little old fashioned but wirh a wealth of information about each Olympics, the sports and the people. The new version of the museum, which costs millions, is trendy, more interactive but I also thought less interesting.

I wasn't super keen to visit this museum but it proved to be fascinating and the kids loved it. A bonus is the superb terrace cafe with breathtaking views over the lake.

Lovely view of the Swiss Alps from the top of the staircase before you enter the museum. Wonderful to actually see and touch an olympic medal and stand on the winning podium. Inpiring words from olympic athletes. Great lifelike sculptures in the garden.

Gorgeous view & surrounding gardens, full of facts & history and beautiful sculptures make this place absolutely worth visiting. I truly enjoyed it & while was staying in Lausanne only one & half days, I went to this muse twice!

We thought of spending an hour which became almost half a day. So many things that we never knew is up for display in a very informative manner. If you have a Swiss pass, entry is free.
