    This exhibition "Los Angeles un fiction" was not the best I have seen. Very odd in my veiw and I have seen a lot. To much video and photography for my taste. However, a very ambitious exhibition but j...  more »

    June 2016 I had the chance to see the exhibition Yoko Ono with a guide... and that changes everything! It's very nice to have the "legend" of these works... the vision is completely different. Anyway, I found this fantastic exhibition!

    The Museum of Contemporary Art is closed until March 8th. I will update my review then because there's a really cool-looking exhibit on Los Angeles coming and I love LA, so I'm hoping to see it. Entry is free that evening (the 8th). I'll be there! (I can tell you the area surrounding the MDC is really nice. It's right across from the Parc de la Tete d'Or, and there are a few trams and buses that stop there, so it's easy to get to and from)

    One of the best museum in France concerning modern art

    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.

    Great collection

    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.

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.
