Delve into the history of the OL football team

OL Le Musée 10 avenue Simone Veil Accès par la mezzanine d’OL Store (Entrée Nord du stade) - 69150 Décines-Charpieu

Established in 1952, the club reveals its history, from its beginnings to the present day. Whether you’re a football aficionado or novice, this 1,300 m² museum offers a chance to discover or relive the clubs history!

While the traditional gallery of football shirts takes pride of place (which is your favourite?), the archival documents are worth going out of your way for. You can reminisce about Juninho’s incredible free kicks and even check his professional licence, or admire the moustache of Raymond Domenech, former OL player and French national team coach.

Designed to be a modern and immersive space, the museum uses audio-visual technology to show videos of the club’s greatest moments and changing room secrets.

Of course, the former Gerland stadium has not been forgotten, and the trophy room (in a giant football!) is hungry for more glory!

For all the club’s victories, memories of its darker moments are not forgotten, such as the passing away of Luc Borelli (then substitute goalkeeper at OL) in 1999. Homage is also paid to Anatole Vologe (affectionately known as Tola Vologe), a former high-level sportsman who was shot in Lyon by the Nazis in 1944. The club’s training centre was named after him for many years.

For an all-round experience, you can combine a visit to the museum with a tour of the stadium?

Come on OL!

Eléonore

Eléonore is the romantic member of the team! Rumour has it that she knows her classics better than anyone else, and if you want to strike up a conversation with her, just mention Jane Austen, and you'll be away!
