  • Go through this small Museum of automatons, it deserves a visit. The host is charming. You will receive an explanation of the design of controllers before entering in the preamble. The universe is well made with different themes. Of the life of every day through Jules Verne, our Lady of Paris, Gargantua etc... A small museum full of charm, for the pleasure of young and old. Put the movement in your thoughts.

  • The old town Museum caters primarily to children, which incorporates an art used for advertising and for Windows. The reconstructions are: paintings, books or characters and historical events

  • My 6 year old son was delighted to make this visit this Wednesday, December 21. We had reserved (1 month before) to be part of a group of 15 children with tour led by a guide and small workshop at the end. A nice way to discover this museum which is located in the old Lyon is perfect for children.
