Breaking Boundaries
The Olympic Games from Antwerp 1920 to Tokyo 2020

From 20 March 2020, you are invited to visit a special exhibition detailing how Belgium and the Antwerp Games of 1920 helped create the Olympic Games as we know them today. Our country and all of the participating athletes surpassed their previous records in the very first Games to follow the Great War. These were Olympic Games full of firsts and new traditions, including the very first Olympic Oath and the first Olympic flag.

Discover all there is to know about the most remarkable records, the most notable sporting legends and the greatest breakthroughs. Together with the athletes of today and yesteryear, we will be breaking our own records as a museum of sporting and Olympic history.
Discover your own personal bests, and test your fitness against that of current and previous Olympic champions. This is an exhibition full of sports and games for everyone.
