The IOC offers the following Video News Release to all news agencies, broadcasters and online news platforms free of charge.

 

The Olympic Museum in Lausanne was one of over 100 iconic buildings and monuments lit up in blue, the official UN colour, last night (24 October) to celebrate United Nations (UN) Day, which this year marks the 75th anniversary of the organisation. The front side of The Olympic Museum, as well as the fountain on “Quai d’Ouchy”, were illuminated in blue when the sun went down on Saturday at 7 p.m.

 

The Olympic Museum, which was inaugurated in 1993, welcomes nearly 300,000 visitors per year. Some 3,000m2 of exhibition space, 1,500 objects, 150 audio-visual devices, 50 interactive screens, and 7 hours of sound and video celebrate humanity in movement. Its scenography is an invitation to dive into the history of the Games, the dreams, the culture, the design, the challenges and the values of Olympism.
