Established 1965 museum showcases the world's largest collection of Olympic medals, rare photos, swimsuits, films, aquatic research library, art/sculpture and other aquatic related memorabilia dating from the days of ancient Assyria to modern times.
The newest exhibit of the first cultural exchange between USA swimmers/divers and People's Republic of China in 1973, not only marks this historic event with a display of video, images and artifacts, but traces the history of swimming in China from Ancient times, through Mao's Cultural Revolution to the 2012 London Olympic Games, in a bilingual (English and Chinese) format. This exploration of China's swimming history is a fascinating journey that explains why hosting the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing was so important to this emerging nation.
