If London 2012 is too long to wait, drop by Lausanne, where the people are so enamored with the Olympics that they have an Olympic Museum, without ever hosting a Games. This collection of over 10,000 different items relating to sport and the games is one of Lausanne’s most popular attractions and two years after it was founded in 1993 it was named ‘European Museum of the Year’.

The permanent exhibitions tell the story of the history of the Games and of the Olympic Movement, while the temporary exhibitions are more timely. The atmosphere is one of grave importance, their information stresses that the Olympic is about more than just sport and competing. You’ll need to go there and see it if you want to find out what else the Olympics may be about.
