“Great overview of the history of Lyon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2012

Wonderful museum setting out the long history of Lyon, including the traditional puppets of France. Easy to get around and see the displays, very well set out and english explanation sheets. The restaurant has helpful staff and good food.

“Something else to do in Vieux Lyon”
3 of 5 bubbles 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.
