  • Loved this museum, went in with a vague knowledge of Jacquard Looms, but learned all about the history of silk making and its influence on the city and wider culture, more about the history of different people involved in the development of Jacquard Looms and the subsequent impact on workers rights. Fascinating, great staff and a lovely shop too!
  • Really tiny some interesting things.
  • Très intéressante musée ! Great place to learn about Lyons rich history in the silk and fabric industry.
  • Fabulous small museum. Worth it for the demonstration of an original jacquard weaving machine (I think this happens at 3.30 each afternoon). The gift shop sells nice scarves
  • Small museum but interesting

Where to stay in Lyon

Lyon’s nine districts surround the two major rivers running through the city: the Rhône and the Saône. The most scenic districts are Vieux Lyon (Old Lyon) and La Croix Rousse, where the city’s historic sites are located. Lodging in these areas is walking distance to these sites. Near the breathtaking Parc de la Tête, the Tête D’Or district offers a quieter option away from the city center.
