“Something else to do in Vieux Lyon”
Reviewed 27 April 2012

Nestled in the UNESCO heritage site of Vieux Lyon, the museum offers insights into the history of the city as well as temporary special exhibits. Particularly good if you need to escape the rain.

“Not as good as it could be”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

A beautiful building, but very little information available about its history.
Three museums in one (puppets, history of Lyon, and a special exhibition on gastronomy).
The puppet part was fine. The gastronomy exhibition targets the French rather than the international visitor. The history of Lyon part was not very well organised and moving from room to room was sometimes almost dangerous (slopes or steps or split levels with no warning and not enough light to see clearly).
We pointed this out at the desk and were told that they were aware of the problems but that little had been done to remedy them so far.
