Le Musée Olympique

The Olympic Museum pays tribute to the men and women who celebrate and live the Olympic ideal: athletes of course, but also creators, architects, volunteers, all those who are committed to reviving, every wo years, the dream of Coubertin in a form each time renewed.

To live a story is to share it. An enthralling exhibition, moments of intensity. 

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. The Museum has 3000 m2 of exhibition space, over 1500 exhibits, 150 screens and our passion, combining to create the ultimate experience. From The Olympic Park, with its sports installations and sculptures, to the TOM Café and its menus inspired by the cuisine of cities who have hosted the Games, you will have great stories to tell. Take your time, the view of the lake is already enough to take your breath away.
