  • Yet little commitment perhaps because of his specialty, this small museum is worth a visit. Especially for those who like to read books, newspapers. A nice walk through the time of printing.

  • The Museum is housed in a beautiful building near the Cordeliers. The course is interesting, the first genre techniques to modern composition on computer. With many examples, we're going through the centuries who saw the first mobile characters wooden, earthen, lead... Many pages of codex are remarkably preserved.

  • We discovered this museum on a night at the Museum free. We could visit it completely which was not the case of the Museum of fabrics which had kept paying part. Very interesting, we discovered everything, big machine to print up to the China inks, drawings, comics, calligraphy, old books... We liked.

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.
