I'm looking for a museum in Europe that shows the history of modern Olympics. I would prefer a museum in Central Europe, but other parts in Europe are also okay.

You have four options, although you may need to wait for a couple of them...

  1. The Olympic Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland houses permanent and temporary exhibits relating to sport and the Olympic movement. However it's closed for renovations until the end of next year.

  2. The Norwegian Olympic Museum in Hakon's Hall in Lillehammer, was officially opened by King Harald V and Queen Sonja on November 27, 1997. It is the only museum in northern Europe that presents the entire history of the Olympic Games.

  3. The Thessaloniki Olympic Museum used to be just a Sports Museum, but was moved to a new building in 2004 during the Olympic Games year in Athens, and was redesignated as the Olympic Museum.

  4. In 2014, an Olympic Museum will open in London, England. Interactive exhibits will gather together London 2012 memories, show how the venues were built, and seek to inspire future generations.

    Note that the London Olympic Museum never opened, apparently due to lack of funds. Commented Aug 20, 2016 at 22:50
