Exhibition: Stadiums Past and Future

At the Olympic Games, STADIUMS are real eye-catchers. But what do we know about these giant structures? Emblematic of the Olympic Games, STADIUMS also represent a challenge for the host city. With a long history, they refer to the past while turning to the future. With this new programme, The Olympic Museum is exploring the adventure of these buildings whose impact is measured beyond the 16 days of competition.
