It is a very nice place and will be even more once construction works are done. Check dates for re-opening and make sure you put it on your To-Do list in the region.

There is so much to see at the Olympic museum and it covers all sports. The history is really interesting and it is presented well. I especially like the statues and gardens in front of the museum.

We went while the building was being renovated. There is a very limited selection of items on a boat docked in front of the museum. If you are in Lausanne, check it out. Its really cool to see. I would have loved to see the whole museum but just my luck, its closed until next year.

We had the misfortune of visiting while the main museum is undergoing renovation and we were limited to a small collection of items on an old steamboat anchored on the lake. Despite this, we enjoyed our visit. There was no entrance fee, at least on the day we visited. We spent over an hour going through exhibits that included interesting trivia about each Olympiad, a collection of replica medals and torches through the years, and a more detailed look at the last several Olympics including such minutiae as logos and mascots. I'm sure the full museum is much better, and I wouldn't build a day around the temporary museum, but if you're on the waterfront anyway you'll probably be glad you stopped by.

Perhaps because it is currently on a boat in the lake what they can display is fairly limited. So it was great to see all the medals from 1908 to the present (they are copies not the originals) and also all the Olympic torches. Other than that though there is not much else to see
