Lausanne Olympic Museum

Recommended
Along the shores of Lake Geneva, the Olympic Museum, entirely redesigned and restructured in 2013, occupies an outstanding site. Outside the park where works of art stand next to replicas of sporting installations, the museum invites visitors to find out more about the history of the Olympics. Some objects date from ancient Greece. The life and work of Baron de Coubertin are also showcased.
