  • In the old Lyon, break for children: home, booklets for different ages, and short time of visit. Historical and cultural scenes... it grows without realizing it, without forgetting the explanation of the creation of the scenes.

  • small very "local" Museum in an old district of Lyon: magnificent afternoon for our little ones with a treasure hunt; very nice collection of automatons that fascinate young and old. a little-known Museum to the public, but to discover.

  • Review: it's not big, and you get quickly to the end. Mechanically I expected a bit more moves. Apart from the circus at the entrance, it's often busy so basic. On the other hand, for very young children, it's good. Our daughter enjoyed and it was short enough to not her barber! To do in passing, but not everything bet here on it coming into the sector. We were able to benefit from the heritage day rate. In my opinion the normal rate is too high.
