  • This museum on 3 levels and one between ground is pretty well designed, the expos are often very good qualities. The staff is present and pleasant for most of the time... "" Can be noted that there is a shop and a small restaurant with a food terrace is turned more towards "the snack" restore... but on Lyon good addresses for lunch is no shortage

  • I loved this Museum, we can get lucky and come across extremely interesting works (since these are temporary works) or not... The building is very beautiful!

  • Art lover and being on Lyon I hurry to the Museum of contemporary art in the international city. The building is superb and prompt to enter! ... then what disillusionment! The Museum offers 3 floors of exhibitions... and that's all! no exposure permanently! attention is not necessarily clear for tourists like me... Temporary exhibitions are also very conceptual, installations, videos... Finally almost no pictorial art or sculpture... For me in 10 minutes it was folded with a huge frustration!

  • A cool museum next to Parc Tete d'Or and Cite Internationale. I saw there a temporary exposition from Yoko Ono. It was a first succesfull experience in Modern Arts. A great family to visit with family and friends.
  • The museum is decent, but unfortunately only one exhibition takes over the entire museum. I personally cannot stand Yoko Ono's brand of pretentious pseudo-art and although that is not the museum's fault, a more extensive main collection could've improved the experience.
  • Expensive and poor, only 3 floors
  • A most enjoyable visit. The exhibitions were surprising & stimulating. The Cafe was not - average over-priced food.
  • Great collection, nice atmosphere. Had a dream house :)
