The Communities within the Olympic Foundation for Culture and Heritage consist of the Olympic Museum Network (OMN), National Olympic Commitees Culture and Education Champions’ Network (NOCs) and eight Recognised Organisations.
Olympic Museum Network
The Olympic Museum Network (OMN) was founded on 7 September 2006 in Lausanne under the leadership of IOC Presidents Rogge and Samaranch. It is made of 31 Olympic museums from all over the world. The aim of the OMN's is finding ways of working together on useful synergies and joint projects to develop in order to improve quality and to share costs. Over the past 14 years, the network has helped in the acquisition market and in dealing with collections, exchanges, co-productions, educational programmes, publications and programmes for business development and attracts more than 1.5 million visitors a year, figure which could rise significantly however with big projects for new Olympic Museums and the potential creation of a “global platform” to reach not only physical visitors but also virtual visitors.
