The interior exposition of the NOC of Belarus "History of the development of the Olympic movement in the Republic of Belarus" is constantly increasing with items reflecting recent sport achievements of the country. One of the new most valuable receipts needed to be noted here is a T-shirt with signatures of participants of the Fed Cup held on 11-12 November 2017 in Minsk and other exhibits related to this outstanding achievement of Belarusian tennis.

An honorable place of the exhibition is dedicated to the Belarus preparation for the II European Games, which will be held in Minsk on 21 – 30 June 2019. This section is constantly expanding.

Among the newest receipts are the official torch and mascot of the XXIII Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, designs of the outfit of native athletes on these Games, signed cards of the Olympic champions Pyeongchang 2018 and even more.

A unique feature of the interior exposition is the interactive zone where visitors can test their dexterity in the game "Athletics"on the Xbox Kinect, test sharpshooting in the virtual dash, undergo exciting Olympic tests and take memorable photos on the HappyBox device.
