By all means, schedule at least 2 hours, maybe 3, for a visit to this unique museum which features, as the title indicates, miniatures and cinematic paraphernalia. It is educational, informative, and downright fun. Highly recommended.

We came across this museum by chance during a still through the old town. Over 8 rooms it is a fascinating insight into movie making with relics from a host of familiar films.

This museum shows in detail about costuming and scene design for movies, with lots of wonderful examples but the very best part, to us, is the miniature work of the museum's founder, Dan Ohlmann. Each scene is more amazing and detailed than the one before. I couldn't wait to look up more information on France's "first miniaturist", an incredible artist.... More

I came here for my birthday with friends and absolutely loved it. The owner is a talented miniaturist and it was fascinating to learn how models are used in film and television. It's not all CG! Given the CSI memorabilia and miniatures, I'd love to see something on my favourite season of CSI, season 7 with the miniature killer! A... More

It seems all things on the cinema museum are originally from the movies, no replicates. It is really fun! I wish I had watched more movies haha my favorite part were the villains and things from horror movies, it was pretty scary. The miniature museum is very cute and some of the miniatures are from typical places from Lyon like... More

frankly spoken - I've never seen such a tremendous, beautiful collection of handcrafted artwork before - several floors of miniatures representing unlimited creativity of their builders. Plus a lot of original movie scenes, figures etc. - plenty of time required to really indulge everything. Even our children didn't have problems in staying for two hours as there's so much to...

Miniatures museum Had a one day stop in Lyon and since it was so highly recommended ( and because I love models etc) we decided to check out the miniatures museum. The museum in located in Vieux Lyons which is a must see anyway if you're in the city. The narrow cobblestone streets and plethora of beautiful churches and cathedrals... More

I took my two daughters and niece to this museum in july 2016. It was a lot of fun! My kids are at an age when they don't want to see museums and churched anymore, so I am constantly looking for alternatives so we can compromise. The robot Alien they have there is amazing!! If you are a fan...worth checking... More
