The Olympic Museum

A marathon of emotions. Would you like to relive great Olympic moments? Feel the pulse of the champions? Discover the creative flair of the host cities? The world of the Games with its many facets will open up to you for a full and unique experience.
Because of the current exceptional circumstances, the temporary exhibitions and events planned for 2020 have had to be postponed to 2021. As a result, the Sport X Manga exhibition is to be discovered since March 2021.

The 40th edition of the Olympic Week will be 100 per cent digital! It will be transformed into a platform for online exchange and interaction. Watch this space!

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.
