  • The pricing remains honest and the building is well kept. The exhibits are interesting. Point to clarify, I'm just a casual visitor to the Museum and I have good memories of it :)

  • It's a real art museum, where one can see the beautiful city of Lyon since its roof. There are really many different room with many diverse themes, very interesting.

  • I have visited several times the Museum including Construction... OK for architecture original but disproportionate having regard to the place where it is placed... in the middle of the Rhône/Saône confluence spaces inside to the level of traffic without that we also understand how it works. A really interesting room: evolution, for the rest, a cabinet of curiosities! Rooms without interest. Yes recently a temporary exhibition on the interesting Arctic. The gardens to tour. That said, the exorbitant Construction cost (330 m€) and the annual cost of operating more than 30 m€ are absolutely not the result and especially what we put into it.

  • This museum is wonderful! Though we weren't able to see all of it what we saw was excellent. They have very interesting exhibit set ups that provide a nice change from standard museums and there were lots of interactive components. This was especially interesting in the natural history section which is usually just a collection of taxidermy animals. They had information about endangered and extinct animals and a lot of the animals set up by classification in an educational way. Also the building itself is fascinating. It would definitely be a good museum for families.
  • A brand new museum with both interesting permanent and temporary collections. There is a nice view on the city and the rivers from the terrace. The price is fair as well.
  • Good but not very. Pottery items of Africa of one century back and some shoes of special class. They should have included some more stuff. Unnecessarily expensive.
  • Amazing museum with modern architecture. The neighbourhood is really modern too. The museum specialises on Nature and Human culture. Great place to take children.
  • An impressive building with an impressive free entry for students. A variety of things to see to suit a variety of interests. I would recommend the stuffed animals, antarctica exhibit, and the penguins.
