J’y allais pour passer le temps...mais je me suis très vite pris aux jeux...histoire depuis l’Antiquité, redécouvertes des valeurs et surtout une ode aux sportifs de haut niveau! On se rend vite compt... more »I was going there to pass the time... but I quickly got caught up in the games... history since antiquity, rediscovering values and above all an ode to top athletes! We quickly realize that the Olympics are part of history but also of its own history. Animations that allow to seduce the youngest and games at level -3 to seduce young and old. Finally the last piece remains amazing for me! Two hours of quiet sightseeing.
This is one of the nicest museums I've ever been to. Interactive and modern exhibits make the entrance fee worth every penny. Give yourself 2-3 hours for this museum, easily. Lots of opportunities to rest and sit, watch fun historic videos, and learn new things. Just don't drink anything while you're in because there is no bathroom in the museum itself, only on the entrance and exit.
A good place to visit if you are into sports and like Olympics. By coming into the The Olympics Museum you will learn more about the history of Olympics. The different sports that were on competition. You start on Ground level and walk up to second floor and going around each floor, looking at photographs and also the attires, shoes, sports materials use by the athletes. The story or history of Olympics is briefly explain. But you can spend more time here and learn more. I suggest coming here with more free time so you can take advantage of no time pressure and really enjoy and learn. 🇱🇰
