China Sports Museum

Located in the south-east part of the National Olympic Sports Centre in Beijing, the China Sports Museum (CSM) was completed and opened to the public in 1990, at the 11th Asian Games. It is the first comprehensive sports museum at national level and is affiliated with China's General Administration of Sport.

The museum houses more than 10,000 items from various sports collections, covering periods from the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BC) to the present day, including torches, medals, mascots, clothing, equipment, books and historical documents related to the Olympic Games and other international events; valuable objects belonging to Chinese athletes that bear testament to major breakthroughs in Chinese sports history; and valuable gifts linked to international sports communication. Notable themed exhibitions have included “Chinese ancient and modern sports”, “Sports achievements of the People's Republic of China”, “The Olympic Movement” and “Traditional Chinese sports”. 

Today, the CSM is as committed as ever to telling the stories behind the collections, playing a greater role in spreading Chinese sports culture, promoting the Olympic spirit and Chinese sporting spirit, and enhancing international understanding and cultural dialogue.
