The World Watches Gallery
The Olympic and Paralympic Games transcend sport, and The World Watches tells the stories of the Games’ global impact on history and culture.

Interact with the Timeline exhibit

The World Watches Gallery - Interactive Timeline

A timeline of every year of the Summer and Winter Olympics and Paralympics presents the chronology of the Games. The timeline dives into how the sociopolitical and geopolitical context influences the Games while the Games themselves affect the world at large.

Visitors can interact with content ranging from political and social commentary to the distinct cultural background of each host city of the Games.
