This museum, opened in 2004 (after the Athens Olympics), is a beautifully presented space depicting the history of all things athletic, as well as of the Nemean, Panathenaic and, of course, Olympic Games. The sculptures, mosaics and other displays all pay tribute to athletes and athleticism. Women, and their involvement (or lack of), are also acknowledged.
