Olympic Museum reopens in Switzerland

Olympic Museum reopens in Switzerland
10 Feb 2014

The Olympic Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland, has reopened after a 12-month renovation programme. 

It has now been redesigned as a three-level 'Olympic Campus', featuring the largest Olympic archive in the world, which includes medals and footage of finish-line moments. 

A temporary exhibition area will play host to some of the world's finest travelling sporting exhibits, and there will be workshops for young people. 

Visitors can also enjoy the park, where they can measure their speed against former champions and browse the garden of Olympic records and the Olympic pathway. 

'The Olympic Museum is where different cultures, ages and nationalities speak the same language and love to spend time together,' commented Tanja Dubas, head of sales and marketing. 

'The view of the new terraces with his restaurant and art gallery is outstanding.'

Lausanne is the home of the International Olympic Committee, and on the organisation's 100th birthday, it was named 'the Olympic City'. ADNFCR-408-ID-801691648-ADNFCR
