The Olympic Museum
Le Musée Olympique rend un hommage aux hommes et aux femmes qui célèbrent et vivent l’idéal olympique: les athlètes bien sûr, mais aussi les créateurs, les architectes, les volontaires, toutes celles et ceux qui s’engagent à faire revivre, tous les deux ans, le rêve de Coubertin sous une forme à chaque fois renouvelée.
Following a period of renovation, the Olympic Museum reopenned in December 2013.
Completely revamped exhibition areas, themes revisited, nearly twice as much exhibition space, more reception facilities, a newly landscaped park… This brand-new museum is now ready to welcome visitors.
