Have visited this museum 3 times, twice before the renovation which closed the museum for a year and then recently after the renovation.
Even before it was a great museum, but is even better and more comprehensive now!
You can easily spend a few hours here, not because of queues but how much interesting stuff there is. You have everything from the origin and early history of the Olympics, to all the sport memorabilia as well as the new part which is everything else than the sport part - the Village, the politics, the design, the buildings etc etc.
It is a very well-worth visit, for any age and any nationality.
Do note that they only accept Visa cards for payment (or cash) since they're a key sponsor.

There is a lot to look at, but also plenty of interactive things for small people to open, press, push, select. Great video montages, and historical costumes and equipment. The display of Olympic torches was good as were the medals from all the games. The service in the cafe was very slow, and although the view was great, it was very expensive for what it was.

The difference between the equipment of the past and present and very good value, take time reading the history, the medal room is fantastic

This museum is located right by shore of Lac Leman, about a 5-10 minute stroll from the Ouchy metro station along the lake shore. The museum grounds host a series of various sculpture and is a veri nice park in its own right.

The exhibits in the museum are very well done, starting with the origins of the Olympic Games in the Ancient Greek time, continuing to the origin of the modern Olympic Games, and up to how the games evolved until now.

One drawback in my opinion is the rather expensive entrance fee at 18 CHF for adults. Despite this , it is highly recommended for any one that happens to be around the area.
