The first thing that caught our eye was the stunning museum itself, when we entered the building, we were inspired by the ancient statues. We went on an Olympic trail around the museum and learnt that they received laurel wreath crowns instead of medals and champions had pots and statutes made with an identical figure on them.
We also compared the old Olympics to the new. In the afternoon we looked at Ancient Greek writing and mosaics. We were amazed to see a model of Ancient Olympia and also the 2012 medals. It was the best school trip we have ever been on.
