  • Comments of this museum to be read as a novel, and many times, the history and printing and typography into amazing resonance with the digital world in which we live now. I did not that this museum captiverait me so much. This museum is unsuited to children and adolescents, but very interesting for a young adult who has questions about the society in which it is called to live.

  • Very beautiful Renaissance building. 4 floors. We're going to the middle ages, or even before, until the 1970s. Very beautiful documents, very nice collection. Apparently, there are demonstration workshops. Very informative and exciting.

  • Probably the best museum with very interesting facts on the history of printing. You'll see how this influenced many of our habits today. The visit is 4 to 5 hours long if you want to read and take your time to see everything in details. The visit is free if you have the Lyon Card pass giving you access to all museums in the city as well as unlimited access to the transportation system. Big up to the staff who put out the amazing things there!
  • Very interesting museum. A trip through time to discover the story of the print.
  • allez y !! c'est hyper intéressant et instructif!
  • A small museum is perfect to discover all the wonders of the printing press and the beauty of typography. A lot of things to see and discover.
