Print This Article

The redesigned and expanded Olympic Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland will open its doors shortly before Christmas and offer exhibitions over 3 000 square metres – nearly double the space before the renovations.

The tourism office in the Swiss canton of Vaud said there will be 300 digital screens showing Olympic moments, along with 1 000 exhibits about famed as well as little known athletes on hand when the museum re-opens on December 21.

There is also space in the Olympic Park for art exhibitions and sports events. The museum is more than just an exhibition site. It is also the home of the Olympic flame where the Eternal Olympic Flame burns when there are no Olympic Games
