  • the neighborhood is ugly but beautiful Museum. beautiful architecture, a restaurant on the outside, a small snack on the 4th floor (with terrace and beautiful view) I spent 4 hours. confluence of civilizations, Gallery of evolution, primitive arts... only problem: the parade of strollers.

  • Nice museum with interesting architecture. You should go in the museum for the architecture but not for the permanent exposition. The exposition is boring and can be seen in tousands of other museums. Entrance fee is not high, parking approximately five minutes to go. There is a small bistro in the top floor of the museum with beautiful view.
  • A bit of everything. The current exhibition on the Lumiere brothers was in-depth and very interesting visually. Permanent exhibition is a mini Natural History museum but again well laid and explanation in French and English. There's a cafe on the fourth floor and the view of Lyon is worth a visit. Staff were polite and helpful in suggesting a wheelchair for my 86 year old mum which we return to the cloakroom on our way out. Easy access by tram.
  • Nice museum with some permanent exhibition on evolution, technology. Good to get an overview but not the best in Europe at any of those topics. The temporary exhibitions we saw were interesting, particularly the one on the Lumiere brothers. The building is interesting on its own and it is worth going to the upper floor to take on the views over the city to the north and over the river confluence to the South.
  • Very modern museum, a lot of interesting expositions, a huge amount of things you can interact with. Nice place to attend with children and spend time usefully and with a fun. It is one of the main places "have to visit" in Lyon.
  • Very interesting building. Wonderful exhibits. Shopping centre nearby. Learnt a lot. Would definitely recommend it 👌
