This week at the Olympic Museum (24-30.04.2006)

Olympic Games: so Comics! exhibition
From 25 April to 25 June 2006
The Olympic posters presented reveal a world where rabbits ski and dogs pole vault, and where nothing prevents a bird from lighting the Olympic flame. And this same Wonderland, with its overtones of The Magic Roundabout would appear to be home to most of the mascots which have symbolised each of the Olympic Games since 1972.
Angel or Demon? The choice of Fair Play exhibition
Until 5 November 2006
Whether in sport or in our daily lives, human beings choose, suffer or impose their behaviour. In competition as in play, the balance between self control and impulsiveness, respecting or deviating from a line of conduct, is a very delicate one. This exhibition on fair play asks the visitor to consider his own angels and demons and confronts him with the fragile balance of the human relations. These games of mirrors, situations, confrontation, reflection and feelings illustrate the fact that fair play is not incompatible with performance, even at the very top, and that its absence destroys the very concepts of play and sharing. A conclusion which is certainly valid in the field of sport but also in our daily lives.
Opening hours: Tuesday to Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. As from 1 May, open every day
