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?  Inside the museum, the three levels of the permanent exhibition each revisit an essential dimension of modern Olympism: The Olympic World, the Olympic Games and the Olympic Spirit. It is a place where the Olympic values and issues can be experienced, explored and shared. The world of the Games will open up to you with 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.

A café with breathtaking views

The TOM café is on the top floor of the Olympic Museum. Its contemporary, colourful décor has a distinctly sporty theme. The café has one of the most sought-after terraces in the whole of Lausanne, offering spectacular views over Lake Geneva and the Alps. Visitors can relax in the café after looking round the museum or alternatively head straight there from the north entrance.

The TOM Café is the perfect place to welcome your groups and offers a varied culinary journey, with its menus inspired by the cuisine of cities which have hosted the Games.

Capacity : 80 people (TOM Café) and 170 people (Club Coubertin) 

A unique gift shop

The gift shop, located in the lobby area, is a great place to start – or end – the Olympic Museum experience. It offers an exclusive, constantly changing range of quirky and original products.
