By | 20 May, 2020 | 0 comments

Barcelona is a city where you can truly live and breathe the fundamental values of sport. The 1992 Olympic Games represented a genuine before-and-after moment for the city, not just economically, but also in the culture and power of sport on a social level. A perfect embodiment of this sentiment is the Barcelona Olympic Museum, your window into the sporting world.

History and values of the Barcelona Olympic Museum

This museum, the full name of which is the Museo Olímpico y del Deporte Juan Antonio Samaranch, was born out of the idea of turning sport into a key tool for social integration, giving visitors a unique perspective on sporting values across the full spectrum of disciplines.

Naturally, the museum took its name from the illustrious Juan Antonio Samaranch, President of the International Olympic Committee between 1980 and 2001, who promoted the positive ideals of sport throughout his professional career.

Hard work, perseverance, sacrifice and team play are the key pillars that the Barcelona Olympic Foundation – the body in charge of managing and running the museum – promotes throughout each and every exhibition.

Barcelona Olympic Museum: an interactive cultural experience

Considered one of the best museums in Barcelona, the Barcelona Olympic Museum has put all its efforts and resources into new technologies to achieve pioneering multimedia and interactive displays throughout the site.

Visitors can take a tour through all the different sports on show here, absorbing all the incredible experiences and reflections that emerge. A comprehensive journey through sport, ranging from professional athletes and top-flight performance to everyday leisure – a must-see for every sports fan.
