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.

  • Smashing building, worth a visit for just that. Easy to get to, tram stops at door. €9 per adult. Permanent exhibitions full of interesting artefacts, presented in interesting and informative ways. Bu...  more »
  • Great architecture and interesting exhibitions. I liked to walk by the animals in 1:1size this getting a feel for their real size.  more »
  • The building is set on the confluence of two rivers. It is a very futuristic piece of architecture. Inside it seems very bleak with corridors which have almost "hidden" entrances till you get right up...  more »

  • Looking from the outside, it looks like it would be filled with contemporary art, but do not be fooled, it is not. The museum is quite interesting, from the permanent exhibitions, to the contemporary exhibitions, however I was missing a red thread, and bigger exhibitions, it was all very small. It is however fairly cheap, and I think worth a visit.
  • Interesting permanent exhibition, with explanations in French and English. Not a simple walk through museum, but lots of interactive items and video material. Temporary exhibition on poison was nice.
  • The architecture is stunning, the expeditions are very interesting and very complete. Overall one of the best museums I have been too.
  • The architecture is amazing, there is a roof Cafe that is fairly easy to get to with nice staff and a good selection. Exhibits were fantastically set up
  • Superb architecture reflecting light in many interesting ways. Take the elevator to the 4th Floor and stroll down the winding path to cap a visit worth the detour.
