My wife and I visited this museum with our 22 year old son. We were all impressed. Lots of exhibits make good use of the latest technology and they all worked (in our experience of museums, this is unusual). All aspects of the Olympics are covered and the route through the museum cleverly takes you through the less exciting topics... More

If you are sports fan that loves (sports) history... Well, this place is defenately for you. From rare pictures to games for children, from devices used back then, to the ones used now... The olimpic torch replica collection is worth visiting alone.

I am not a museum lover. In fact, most museums I can get through within 30 minutes, but I spent over an hour here and could have spent more time! Great displays, very interesting. The gardens in the front are gorgeous!

Engaging, interactive and informative. A great day with the kids learning about the history of the olympics. The kids loved the skills - cross country skiing/shooting (biathlon?) as well as the memory and hand speed challenges. Great videos and Olympic items. Outstanding.

I was here last week for a conference. The organizers arranged a free entry in the museum and dinner in the restaurant on the terrace. The museum was nothing special, a lot of interactive stuff, which I honestly find boring. I liked the videos of the opening cerimonies of the OG. Still it was great the restaurant, both the food...

A great museum telling the history and story of the Olympic movement. Lots of memorabilia from past games as well as info on the upcoming Rio 2016. Some amazing facts and figures regarding the athletes, the sports, venues, and finishes off with some fun interactive challenges. A couple of hours well spent.

Very nice museum and grounds, well-rounded with history, art, videos, interactive and multimedia displays. Spend a couple hours or longer depending on your level of interest. Especially relevant now since the Rio games start in a couple weeks. Free entry with the Swiss Travel Pass.

There is plenty to see even without entering the museum. Along the front lawn are displays you can enjoy.

Such an amazing experience. Went in somewhat skeptical and spent 3 hrs mesmerized by all the displays and interactive presentations. Excellent cafe with lake view, wonderful gift shop. Very family friendly.
