  • Perhaps the best interactive museum that I have ever visited. Set in a modern building with stunning views across the lake to the Swiss Alps. Fascinating background material on the history of the Olympic Games and a huge catalogue of "memorable moments". My old A Level PE students would have loved it.
  • First time in this well known museum. We spend 2 hours, but as an adult I could have spent another 2h more, reading and learning about the history of the games. The kids were interested, jumping from one exhibit to the other. The good news was the ability to buy a family entry ticket for a reduced price, instead of individual entry fees. The bad news was that we did not take the audio guides because it was sooo expensive. 😳
