Rêver en blanc is the latest exhibit at the Olympic Museum in Lausanne. It opened just in time for this year's Winter Olympics as well as the 100-year anniversary of the Olympic Winter Games in 2024.

Rêver en blanc - Dreaming in white

The temporary exhibit covers the Olympic Winter Games past, present, and future. It explores themes that will play an increasingly important part in the games. By nature, the various disciplines depend on wintry conditions. But in the face of climate change, how can winter games continue to take place in a sustainable way?

This exhibit lives from the many video clips and historical sports artifacts. And there are some fun selfie spots, too... (How about stepping into a pair of vintage skis?) We are especially keen on the poster gallery, as well as the collection of mascots from past editions.

And finally, those of us with a nostalgic streak will appreciate a rare collection of photographs: some 80 archival photos showcase the Olympic Winter Games from 1924 to 1968.

The aptly named exhibit is free of charge. For guided tours and special events related to the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022, have a look at the program.
