  • Museum beautiful both by the exhibitions presented by the architecture of the museum itself. Expo temporary always beautiful and you get tired of the permanent exhibition. Accessible to all ages. Terraces to enjoy a beautiful view of Lyon, the Rhône and the Saône. The place of restoration proposed on the top floor is pleasant by its configuration. I recommend.

  • the beautiful objects and collections but closed exhibitions not reported upon arrival, too bad. Signage proposed in exhibitions was poor.

  • Wonderful place to spend an afternoon in Lyon. Went in a rainy day and it was perfect. Well curated exhibits in French and English and the temporary exhibits during my visit were awesome. If you have the Lyon City Card, you're admission is included including the temporary exhibits. Don't miss out on the great views from the cafe.
  • 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.
  • Over the top designed building, already showing traces of age after only three years, very basic practical errors, such as the fact that people have to queue in the rain at the main entrance because everyone has to go thru a security check, whereas there is an unsignalled other entrance on the other side of the building that has ample exterior covered space. Big emphasis was put on the museography's aesthetics, but not on the visitors experience: one example is putting screens on a wall with a bench opposite, but then having the main flow of people walking between the bench and the screen.
  • Beautiful building by Austrian design. Free for students under 26. Lots of expositions to see. Can get cold so bring a jacket!
  • It's amazing to see such a variety of species and history under one roof. A must see in Lyon.
