  • If you love the Olympics, this is your paradise! The museum is clever, reasonably priced, and extremely innovative. It also overlooks Lake Geneva, which is an added bonus. One cool thing, the shop has many items representing past Games. Another, try the interactive skill games on the final floor.
  • Enjoyed our 2 hour walk through. Our boys (13 and 9) thoroughly enjoyed their journey through the history of the Olympics... especially having just followed the Tokyo Olympic event
