Received the swayed museum of the year in 1995 and is still wonderful! Well organised exhibits on the Olympic Games, on Rio and a championship of a new Brazilian sport! A must when in Lausanne! The gardens are lovely too!

Must visit place for those who like sport. Museum has different attractions and Olympic attributes. I have found so many unknown points about history of sport. I would prefer to spend there all the day if I have enough time.

My daughter was a college athlete and was so looking forward to going there. My husband and I "went along for the ride" but boy were we pleasantly surprised. In a beautiful setting with lots of memorabilia and interactive exhibits, I would not miss this if you are in the area.

I was here for an evening business networking event on the top floor. The exhibits were interesting inside and outside and enough to interest even those with a limited interest in sport. The grounds are well maintained, artistic and interesting. If you're in Lausanne, you should visit this place

This is an interactive museum very interesting, you can learn about Olympic Games and you can do activities about it. I am sure you will enjoy your visit in this almost renovated museum with all the stories of the Olympics.

It's impressive how many of the Olympic flames and medals are on display- all of them from the beginning of the journey. I particularly like the ancient history of the origins of the Olympic games before the 1900s. Extremely enriching museum. I went on a rainy day and spent 3 hours there, but it might be even nicer on a... More
