National Sports Museum
The National Sports Museum has a unique collection of approximately 100,000 objects dating from the 16th century up to the present tracing the history of sport in France in its individual and collective expression, and in the context of professional practice as well as leisure. Closed in 1997, the museum has been waiting nearly 15 years to redeploy its collection in an adapted space. Designed by Wilmotte Architecte, the new Nice Stadium is the new home for the National Sports Museum.
In collaboration with Vinci Construction and Wilmotte Achitecte, Lordculture - the Europrean office of Lord Cultural Resources - developed the concept for the permanent exhibition, as well as the design of the lobby. The permanent exhibition has a dual educational goal: it provides an understanding of the history of sport and the exceptional collections of the museum, while also offering visitors and immersive experience into the world of sports.
