  The International Olympic Museums Network, also known as OMN is the first international organization of Olympic museums established by International Olympic Committee.

  The first Olympic Museum, established in Lausanne, Switzerland, records the brilliant history of Olympic development and people's love for the Olympic spirit. It conveys the idea that "no matter where you are, there is always an Olympic museum nearby to showcase the history and values of Olympism!".

  On June 23, 1993, the Olympic Museum was completed and a grand opening ceremony was held. Samaranch, then president of the International Olympic Committee, cut the ribbon for the museum and said: "today is a very important day for the promotion of Olympism. We are holding a ceremony for the completion of the Olympic Museum, which is the dream of our founder, Mr. Coubertin. We have the honor to change it into reality ".

  The Olympic Games are held only once every four years. There are only a few people who can participate in the games, while the Olympic Museum is different. It connects all the Olympic Games and is open to all people for a long time. Everyone can experience the Olympic culture and feel the Olympic spirit of "respect, friendship and pursuit of excellence" in the Olympic Museum.

  Xiamen Olympic Museum joined OMN as a founding member in 2006, participated in various academic discussions and business exchanges, and carried out extensive international project cooperation, which played a positive role in promoting the Going Global of Chinese sports culture.
