Practical information for schools:
Following the renovation of the Olympic Museum, a temporary museum takes over on a boat of the CGN.
From April to October 2012, the boat houses an exhibition on Olympism. During this period, no group bookings are possible. For security reasons, we also inform you that the boat can only accommodate a limited number of passengers at the same time.
We thank you in advance for your understanding.
Schools will be offered a very attractive and diverse programme once The Olympic Museum reopens at the end of 2013. Two teaching/play areas will be created to enable The Museum to fulfil its educational role even better. More details will be provided as soon as they are available.
