    This museum, by various small exhibitions offers many opportunities to learn about a variety of topics. The architecture of the place and the view reinforces the quality of this museum. Free for minors and students is a good thing

    Since the time that we passed this huge structure dedicated to the glass and metal, we decided we us stop there for a visit. Everything is excellent! Worthy of the best museums in North America. On the other hand, parking is mediocre. After we be introduced to the bad parking (the vigil used and redirects with a smile) we parked in a field located beyond the gas station. Pedestrian access deplorable and dangerous. Expensive price. I recommend you eventually you park outside. There are a lot of places!

    This museum is worth a visit: the permanent exhibitions are excellent and temporary exhibitions are well worth the visit! Exposure Venenum is exciting! Only caveats: the distant parking of the building and the queues...

    Amazing place to visit. They have lots of things to view and the concept of having everything mixed up makes it totally un-boring. Usually three rooms have temporary exhibitions so you can go back from time to time. In the outside you have the real "confluence" of the two rivers that cross the whole town. Definitely a place to visit.

    Beautiful building by Austrian design. Free for students under 26. Lots of expositions to see. Can get cold so bring a jacket!

    Exhibitions with so much love to details. Very comprehensive and well done. Can only recommend the visit.

    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.

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.
