We enjoyed the museum. Cost 18 SF + 5SF each including audio guide.

The whole project was spearheaded by a visionary Educationalist, Pierre de Coubertin. The progressive development... More

The museum offer a good input on the history of the olympic games. The lower floor show equipment used over the year by sportsmen in their respective categories. This part need to be developed as lots of technologies are applied to all sports nowaday and it should be explain further as it is way to little on show.

Visited with three kids and they a very enjoyable day. Plenty of things for them to see and do. We went upstairs for lunch in the cafe which had a gorgeous view. It was pricey but then it is Switzerland so to be expected. All in all, definitely worth a visit.

The location, by the lake, is amazing, there are some places to picnic, the garden is fantastic within awesome statues related to the Olympics, and inside everything is just spectacular. The only restriction is the price, but it worth.

In a lovely area of Lausanne, surrounded by a manicured park and overlooking Lake Geneva, the Olympic Museum is an inspiring must-see. Beautiful displays. Great for all ages. Unique modern setup. Relive Olympic history. Just go to the Lausanne main train station; take the metro to Ouchy, and walk to the museum.

This is a great place to visit; with kids or just anyone. Beautifully laid out - gives you a wonderful overview of the Olympic movement . The setting of the museum couldn't be nicer.
