The Joan Antoni Samaranch Olympic and Sports Museum is located on Montjuïc mountain and allows for a unique experience based around the Olympic movement and sports. The city’s passion for sport reached its peak with the Olympics in 1992.
This innovative museum offers visitors a global vision of the diverse disciplines and types of sports that currently exist, making prominent use of new interactive representation technologies and various multimedia installations.
The museum and its exhibitions allow for experiences never seen before. Thanks to its simulators, visitors can race against Usain Bolt, discover how Michael Phelps swam, improve aerodynamics while pedalling a bike, or check the actual weight that great weight-lifting champions could handle. A truly unique sporting experience.
Visitors can also view a permanent exhibition on Olympic host cities from Barcelona 1992 to the present, and enjoy the first Olympics that were broadcast on television. Plus, they can try out a range of activities, such as comparing the trainers of great athletes such as Michael Jordon, Pau Gasol or Roberto Dueñas, discovering the Samaranch Collection, or enjoy live sport, among others.
