“Must see for movie enthusiasts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

Was surprised how interesting this museum was, has more going for it than meets the eye. Dan Olhmann's work on miniature film sets are fantastic and are well worth the visit alone. Majority of museum full of film props from the actual films themselves which will draw everyone's attention. A definite must on every travellers list of things to do in Lyon

“They have Harry Potters magic wand”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

What a place. we saw Harry potters magic wand and we met the man behind the museum on one of the floors. We were taking a break on our Way from alsace to Montpellier and can really recommend this as a great place for a break

“Pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

We ducked into this museum while killing time waiting for an area tour to start. We were really surprised that this museum has multiple floors and a really interesting range of both minatures and moive paraphenalia. Great stop for movie buffs and also quite interesting for kids who might have tired of "old churches". I would strongly recommend this as a stop in Lyon.

“What fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

We thought this would provide brief entertainment, but were enthralled. There is so much to see, and just about all of it is wonderful. There are miniature sets, complete in every detail, artificial dead rats and dogs, weapons, gory body parts (artificial!), and even a giant Alien monster. It's worth every cent of the admission. Prepare to be amazed.

“Pleasantly Surprised”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

I was hesitant to pay the 9€ entry but it was worth it! This museum has wonderful modern displays. The props are from hollywood (as the many signs around the museum remind you) and the information is displayed clearly as to which films they are from. Cons: There are a lot of stairs and not everything is translated into english. One thing I thought enhanced this museum experience was the videos that showed 'making of' and 'behind the scenes' footage. My tip - watch the movie 'Perfume The Story of a Murderer' before you go. I hadn't seen this film before my visit and there was a lot in the museum from it. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit!
