Pâkomuzé: An initiative by Lausanne’s museums


Pâkomuzé is an initiative by Lausanne’s museum to invite young people to visit their town’s museums during the Easter holidays. Each museum is organising its own activities. As far as the Olympic Museum is concerned, these activities will take place from 9 to 20 April, and are aimed at 7 to 13 year-olds.
 
Two activities….
The Olympic Museum is offering two workshops: the Equipment of Champions (from 7 years old) and Angel or Demon? The Choice of Fair Play, set up in the framework of the new temporary exhibition of the same name (for 9-13 year-olds). The first workshop is a discovery of the secrets of Olympic champions: the use of fibre glass to jump higher, imitation shark skin to swim faster, feeling good in the head to be stronger… With the second workshop, we find out about game in which anything goes! Each person establishes their own rules, and the objective is to win at any cost. But is there a price to pay…?
 
Two events: Jeannot, the fair play Easter bunny
On Easter Sunday (16 April), at 2 p.m. precisely, the Olympic Museum will remain true to tradition, and sacrifice without regret the traditional giant sporting rabbit on the alter of gourmandise.
 
Fifteen kilos of chocolate usually disappear within half an hour! This year, Jeannot the Easter bunny, who is about 1.5 metres tall, will symbolise fair play, in honour of our exhibition.
 
…and Olympic champions
On 20 April, on the occasion of Eurosport’s SportStar Awards, young people will be able to meet the champions of the 2006 Olympic Winter Games at an autograph-signing sessions. You can find details on these events in the Olympic Museum calendar.
