  • Very nice, an explanation of the mechanisms before the visit of the Museum... a game for kids so that they take ownership better presented scenes. A very interesting tour... Do, especially if you have the Lyon City Card, it is an activity included :)

  • It is a small museum, but dense! We travel from one scene to the other by admiring the Automatons. It is very well developed and very well made, large and small, everyone is fascinated!

  • In the old Lyon, District St. George, is this small Museum of automatons. You should know that, initially, it was a company that manufactured automata and then, over the years, demand is being weakened, this company has become a museum. We learn the history of robots, how they are made from A to Z by just two people in the workshops. There are several scenes (Guignol, Notre Dame etc.), some of which have more than 20 years. For children, there are mini-games during the visit. It is a small museum but to do, robots part of Lyon history.

  • If you look at what limited resources this is set up and what a scene it is to work for Titans to build, this is pretty impressive. And with a beautiful foreign key by the jewels of Vermeer.

  • Very nice little Museum to visit by the young and old. In addition to learn about robots, we learned a lot about Lyon and its history.

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.
