Petit Futé's opinion on OLYMPIC MUSEUM
There's the sports lovers and the others. But all of them will find themselves in this magnificent museum that unifies body and mind!
Here you will find the only museum in the world dedicated to Olympism. It should be noted that each time there are new Olympics, new exhibitions are dedicated to them, and this museum is therefore constantly being renewed. No wonder then that between its creation in 1993 and its closure for renovation in 2013, it was visited by 3 million people! This emblematic museum reopened after two years of work and a complete restructuring of its three floors and 3,000m2. In addition to its permanent exhibition, where you can discover the universe of the Games: the Olympic world, the Olympic Games, the Olympic spirit and all the history and culture of the Olympic Games, this museum houses educational and cultural areas. Its museography is ultra-connected and very playful to captivate the visitor, who is caught up in the game. Highly interactive, the animations are an integral part of the visit. Among the places not to be missed is the space dedicated to the fifty torches since the first one was created in 1936. It is therefore not unusual to spend several hours there, between the numerous indoor play activities or the walks in the outdoor garden. Of course, a café-brasserie allows you to prolong your relaxation by allowing yourself a little rest with a magnificent view of the lake.
The museum in figures: 3,000m2dedicated to exhibitions, 1,500 objects, 150 screens.
The park: 43 sculptures dedicated to the Olympic culture including those of Niki de Saint Phalle, Botero, Tàpies, Calder. 100 m athletics track, mural painting by Antoni Tàpies.
