About Olympic Museum Lausanne, Lausanne

The only place in the world to geek out on the Olympic Games. A quarter million annual visitors, a location right next to the OIC HQ, 10000 items on exhibit (making it the largest Olympic exhibit, not to mention the 87000 items in total) spread out over 3000 square metres, and spanning 2000+ years of Olympic history –this is the real deal. The museum makes fantastic use of multimedia that includes an HD 3D theatre that replays defining moments from Olympic history. The media collection also includes 430,000 photos, 17,500 hours of film footage, and 18,000 books in the Olympic Studies Centre.

The highlights include:

  • The Olympic Flame
  • the complete collection of Olympic Torches and the Olympic Medals
  • Carl Lewis's "golden shoes" from the Los Angeles Olympics (1984)
  • Chris Boardman's revolutionary bike from Barcelona (1992)
  • Eric Heiden's record-breaking speed skates (Lake Placid, 1980)
  • a four-man Swiss bobsleigh (Sarajevo, 1984) and so on

And if geeking out wasn’t enough, how do a terrific rooftop restaurant, and a park filled with spectacular sculptures (you can picnic here) grab you? Renovations that were completed in 2013 have only made the place better.

Olympic Museum Lausanne, Lausanne Reviews

Google+
  • One of the best museums I've seen. I really love the stories and the whole experience. You get a bit of history of the Olympic games, a well as fun anecdotes, bits of science and, most importantly, a lot of motivation. The full field of view video makes you feel like you're in a race during the Olympics. Very accessible prices, about 15 CHF for students. And you can easily spend 5 hours in there without getting bored.

  • Fantastic! Spent hours in this place. Great experience to learn more about the history and beauty of the Olympic Games. The interactive exposition outside is amazing for "kids" of all ages.

  • It is a place that every Olympic games fan should visit. The journey in the museum begins with the very first Olympics which were held in the ancient Greece, with many interactive videos and continues with the modern Olympics starting with Athens 1896 games, till today. I thing there should be more memorabilias from the athletes. Great experience.

  • Great place to visit if you are in Lausanne with a view on the lake! I was not super excited about the museum initially but they really made a big focus on the olden grec games which I found amazing.

  • Lots of things to see here. Just when you think you are done there is whole other exhibition. Lots of up to date multimedia and interactive activities. Staff was friendly and understanding details about the games was quite intriguing.
