Destination Rio 2016: The Games

“Destination Rio 2016: The Games” is the part of the programme which presents everything you need to know about the Games in Rio:

History, candidature, the essentials (medals, torch, Torch Relay, mascots), competition venues, sports on the programme, new and unique sports, etc.

And all this in the colours and “Look of the Games” of Rio 2016!

“Destination Rio 2016” is the programme dreamt up by The Olympic Museum on the occasion of the Olympic Games Rio 2016, providing visitors with a rich and varied experience bathed in the sparkling colours and swaying sounds of Brazil.

To start:

A warm-up route in the park interspersed with info points offering details about Brazil, its history, culture, athletes and music.

The strange little creatures created by artist Felipe Barbosa provide a touch of fun.


Two themed exhibitions, one on the Olympic Games in Rio: the organisation, the look of the Games, the sports on the programme, the athletes and many others.

And the second on the rhythms and diversity at the heart of Brazilian culture through music, dance, popular festivals and sports.

As well as:

Samba and capoeira demonstrations, concerts, film screenings, and culinary specialities at the TOM café.

And of course:

An all-night programme on 5 August to get everyone together to follow the Opening Ceremony of the Games, and, from 6 to 21 August, broadcast of the competitions on the big screen.
