  • A great surprise for the richness of its collections and the quality of the information provided. A beautiful set up in what was the first City Hall of Lyon! If you take your time, visit really very rewarding.

  • 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.
