Opened in 2007 in a new building across from the stadium, the Olympic and Sports Museum gives an overview of the Games (and, indeed, all games) from Ancient Greece onwards. As well as photos and film footage of great sporting moments and heroes, there is an array of related objects (Ronaldinho's boots, Mika Häkkinen's Mercedes), along with a collection of opening ceremony costumes and Olympic torches. Perhaps more entertaining are the interactive displays, including one that compares your effort at the long jump with those of the pros.
