Xiamen Olympic Museum
The Xiamen Olympic Museum, conceived and designed by renowned architect and International Olympic Committee member Ching-Kuo Wu, is home to extensive collections that tell the story of the Olympics. In the entrance hall, visitors are welcomed by a jasper stone from the Changjiang River.
The building’s open-plan structure is divided into two floors, the first focusing on promotion and communication to the public, with a multimedia conference hall, VIP room, coffee shop and gift shop. The second houses exhibition areas displaying Olympic paraphernalia including torches, medals, stamps, badges, coins and mascots, each one a small piece of the story of the Olympic Games over the decades.
Visitors can also find out about the fascinating story of all those – from great sports people and famous faces to ordinary sports fans – who firmly believe that the Olympic movement helps make the world a better place.
