The Olympic Museum – keeping the torch burning
The Museum is not about collections! It’s about an idea: Olympism.
Indeed, TOM’s vocation is to let people discover the Olympic Movement, witnessing its essential contribution to society, and to transmit the Olympic values beyond the celebration of the Games and competitions.
It now hosts nearly 300,000 visitors each year. Some 3,000m2 of exhibition space, 1,500 objects, 150 audiovisual devices, 50 interactive screens, 7 hours of sound and video celebrate humanity in movement. Its scenography is an invitation to dive into the history of the Games, the dreams, the culture, the design, the challenges and the values of Olympism.
Alongside the permanent and temporary exhibitions, The Olympic Museum offers a diverse programme, punctuated by events, concerts and conference cycles, in the Galerie and the Art Lounge. Throughout the year, TOM visitors, locals, tourists, schoolchildren, young and old from everywhere come together to experience the adventure of the Games through these events.
New educational areas are open for younger visitors, with thematic workshops that complement school curricula.
Our unique facilities for seminars and functions have also been updated and improved.
To live a story is to share it! During a guided tour or an unaccompanied visit with your group, you will learn more about the Olympic spirit and world. Enjoy the view of Lake Geneva and the Alps from the TOM Café and fill up on souvenirs at the TOM Shop.
