A must-see when visiting Lausanne. We love that the museum is very interactive. It's impossible not to get chills in front of the huge screen showing the most beautiful moments of the Olympic Games. Almost as if you were part of it!

The experience of sprinting on the 100-metre track in the park of the Lausanne Olympic Museum, with light beams recreating Usain Bolt’s speed, is simply incredible. In addition, there are other fascinating activities to be discovered, and on the museum’s top floor, the TOM Café serves a gourmet all-you-can-eat buffet at the weekends. I recommend booking ahead.

More info

The Olympic Capital, Lausanne has been home to the IOC (International Olympic Committee) for 100 years and in 1993, the IOC founded its unique official museum on the banks of Lake Geneva. In 2013, The Olympic Museum was completely renovated with the most up-to-date facilities. Now on three floors, the exhibition presents the origin of the games, the competitions and the athletic spirit through over 150 screens and 1500 objects: The Olympic torches and medals of all The Olympic games, as well as the equipment of the most famous athletes. Children adore slipping into the skin of an athlete thanks to the many interactive activities.

With its temporary exhibitions, grounds decorated with works of art and a panoramic restaurant with a view over Lake Geneva and the Alps, this is a must-see attraction in Lausanne.
