School Visits

Why should you come to The Olympic Museum with your class?

  • Because the Olympic Games speak to young people:
    The Olympic Games speak to your pupils, whether they are athletes or spectators.
    The Olympic Games concern them because they reflect society’s concerns.
  • Because TOM - The Olympic Museum is a stimulating and dynamic place:
    Interactive and multimedia museography makes the visit a participative experience.
    A team of motivated activity leaders (TOM Coaches) and convivial educational areas are available to school classes.
  • Because the TOM Schools package is complementary to the school curriculum:
    The experiences on offer promote a cross-sector approach.
    They bring out each person’s competences.

Where does the TOM School experience take place?

  • The visit part takes place in the permanent or temporary exhibition.

    N.B.: The exhibitions have a lot of content, and offer films and interactive activities that young people really enjoy. Think about leaving some free time for them.
  • The workshops are held in the educational areas:
    • The Gym’ advocates a sensorial approach. Activity modules invite visitors to touch and test in a bright and colourful environment.
    • The Studio recalls the atmosphere of a television set. The activities that take place there are linked to the interpretation and construction of the sports image (films or photos) of the Olympic Games.
