The entry fee is rather expensive, but we felt the cost was worth it. We found the museum to be very interesting and up-to-date. We enjoyed some of the hands-on activities. Getting there was an easy walk from the Metro/tram service, and the museum grounds...More

Visited the Olympic Museum several times but have yet to watch all the past Olympic documentaries. Jog up the steps and try to beat the high jump record at the entrance if you are really fit. Beautiful view of Lac Léman. Very interesting.

We didn't spend as much time here as I wished. The exhibits are interesting, especially the outfits, equipment, etc. used by Olympians. The gardens are beautiful to walk too. It doesn't cost anything just to wander through the gardens.

Quite a different kind of a museum. Lots of sculptures to start with. A must visit for a sports enthusiast. A 3 hour visit is like reading the complete encyclopedia on Olympics with several exhibits and memorablia.

Very impressed by the facts, statues and scenery of the Olympic Museum at Ouchy. Ouchy is actually part of Lausanne next to the Geneva Lake.

What a rip-off! While there were interesting points, they were few and far between. The way it is designed is confusing. AND, the WORST part is its elevation of the Olympic Committee and NOT the athletes and their excellence. Very self-serving. For the price, you...More

Not really from what I noticed, some interactive stuff, but mostly for adults interested in the rise of the olympic movement. They might enjoy the gardens outside, but a day more for adults.
