With high-tech presentations and touching mementos, this complex pays tribute to the athletic tradition in ancient Greece, the development of the modern Games, the evolution of the individual sports, Paralympic competitions, and to the athletes themselves. There are art objects—an Etruscan torch from the 6th century BC, Rodin's American Athlete—as well as archival films and videos, interactive displays, photographs, coins and stamps, and medals from various
eras throughout Olympic history. A sculpture park, museum shop, and lovely café overlooking the lake complete this ambitious, world-class endeavor. Brochures and guided tours are available in English. The museum is closed for renovations until late 2013.

Magnificent gardens where you can figure out the athletes records-Impressive. Elegant and astonishing view ( plus good food and service) at the "coffee shop", and all our souvenirs of olympics emotions.
