  • I thought a moment of calm and serenity, "Japanese". In fact the Museum is noisy, especially on Sundays where children run everywhere. Music mix in the different rooms and there are not enough seats to watch the videos. For me, Yoko Ono, had more talent. My conclusion: when we are born in an aristocratic family, that there is no money shortage and that more smoking... it's easy to raving about peace in the world!

  • 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.
  • Great collection, nice atmosphere. Had a dream house :)
  • A most enjoyable visit. The exhibitions were surprising & stimulating. The Cafe was not - average over-priced food.
  • small, edgy collection - great gallery space, edge of Tete d'Or park - beautiful area of Lyon
