  • I enjoy exercise but rarely compete. I usually watch the Olympics but not every event. However, the Olympic museum has sparked a much deeper interest in the human aspects of the whole Olympic movement...  more »
  • If you go to Ouchy the lakeside walk is beautiful and there is the Olympic museum which has a beautiful garden and a restaurant with a beautiful view. Worth a visit to the museum since q tells the story of how the Olympic Games began, it is very dynamic and entertaining for sports lovers.

  • This is one of the nicest museums I've ever been to. Interactive and modern exhibits make the entrance fee worth every penny. Give yourself 2-3 hours for this museum, easily. Lots of opportunities to rest and sit, watch fun historic videos, and learn new things. Just don't drink anything while you're in because there is no bathroom in the museum itself, only on the entrance and exit.
  • A good place to visit if you are into sports and like Olympics. By coming into the The Olympics Museum you will learn more about the history of Olympics. The different sports that were on competition. You start on Ground level and walk up to second floor and going around each floor, looking at photographs and also the attires, shoes, sports materials use by the athletes. The story or history of Olympics is briefly explain. But you can spend more time here and learn more. I suggest coming here with more free time so you can take advantage of no time pressure and really enjoy and learn. 🇱🇰
