  • Historical Museum of Lyon is located in the heart of the old town, in a Renaissance building new Gadagne, where the family of weavers. There are many different exhibits, reflecting the long history of the city. The building itself is a sort of Museum, you can visualize the architecture of Lyon, only not with the outer and inner side, with all the courtyards, staircases, passages and other delights. Interesting, I personally remember more of the building itself. Admission 6 euros (children under 18 years free). There is also a separate Marionettes Museum, there is a separate entrance and also for 6 euro (However, 2 of the Museum are offered at a discount for 9). About puppets not sure, and here to visit the "building" is quite possible.
