Managed by the Barcelona Olympic Foundation, the Joan Antoni Samaranch Olympic and Sport Museum is a window into the world of sport. Delving deep into sport as the materialisation of a universal language without borders and a tool for social integration, the museum takes visitors on an unforgettable, long-distance journey into sport.

With a historic, ethical, playful and education vision, the Joan Antoni Samaranch Olympic and Sport Museum is home to pioneering equipment in Europe. It shows a global perspective on all disciplines and methods of sport in an interactive space that boasts advanced technology in all areas, transforming the museum into a spectacle for the senses. New technologies play a very important role through interactive exhibits and multimedia installations, showcasing experiences and provoking reflection.

All aspects of sport are highlighted in the museum, from high performance to competitive sport and leisure, as well as sports practice for people with disabilities or sport in general.

Sport is more than physical exercise. The museum will allow you to go deep into different aspects of sport, the Olympic movement and the values associated with them.
