ON YOUR MARKS… Olympic Museum launched a new exhibit design to explore the concept of time.
Time matters in sport. This exhibition explores the experience, the meanings and social implications of time in sport. Sporting time has to be measured and quantified but time also generates excitement and passion and has inspired art, music, film and sculpture. The exhibition combines material to take the visitor on a journey through time and sport, socially, technologically and artistically.
