The museum is located in front of the Lluís Companys Olympic Stadium at the Montjuïc hill.

One of the most emblematic collections of the museum was donated by the museum's namesake, Juan Antonio Samaranch.
It also includes a temporary exhibition hall and a display of sport in different civilizations. The museum is managed by the Barcelona Olympic Foundation, which is headquartered at the museum.
The museum project was approved by the Barcelona city council in 2005. The museum opened on March 21, 2007.

  • Cool! The entrance is free which was a pleasant surprise. There's a cute little cafe where you can sit for awhile with a view of the stadium. A great place to wander around for a nice stroll.
  • Not much to see, you can just walk in and look over the balcony to the stadium. There's a cafe and a shop. The area it's located is nice so fine to pop in for a look (it's free too), but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit!
