    You can discover the history of the city of Lyon silk. The plus is the demonstration of weaving on a loom of time workshop. The breakfast was very good and guides meet with pleasure to the questions

    It's a small shop that has produced 3 premises to tell the story linked to the silk worm, to workers who have been involved over the course of several decades and to the frames used in the various steps of evolution Interesting to spend a good half hour.

    For two euros, a little presents the history of the canuts; better to go directly to the workshops of silk and weaving.

    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!

    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

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.
