  • We love go just rapidos, 1 hour to see an expo only. We all the annual Festival. It became one walk way with children. The only downside, the expos temperatures are uneven

  • I love this museum but not to give it 5 stars. Maybe in a few years when they get into a rhythm. Too many little things that still do not go: the bar is average, the surface is not well exploited for my taste. But it's still a great Museum of the fact of its different aesthetics, its superb positioning equidistant of the Saône and the Rhône.

  • The site looks great, surprising the buildings (it is compared to that of the Vuitton Foundation in Paris). We have seen the last show on the Poison. Magnificent. At the same time it is against another exhibition on the brothers also super light. Run there

  • 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.

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.
