  • Very French Museum: not just an interesting and rich collection, but also provided easy, beautiful and professional. The Museum building itself, a patio is a wonderful journey start. There are audio guides, maps, plans of the Museum, as well as special thematic recommendations for visitors. Small rooms, with good light. The friendly staff of the Museum. Very highly recommend to visiting tourists, even briefly visiting Lyon!

  • Interesting Interior, really enjoyed the collection of paintings by old masters. No large concentrations of visitors, you can safely consider paintings and exhibits.

  • In the heart of Lyon, you pass the gates and you find yourself in the cloister of an impressive silence. Only birds are heard. Visitors speak softly and are respectful of the place. Nothing worth the trip! The Museum is to do with its permanent and temporary exhibitions.

  • The Museum is not where I have to say it first, which is marked here. When you find the Museum inside there are works by Pablo Picasso, Monet and I say sure could see Egypt section and the bottom floor there's also this too, I would recommend you have a sit down and a great Cafe inside to drink a glass of wine, have a garden value. 😄😄👍🏻

  • One of the beautiful museums of Lyon for a peaceful visit, just like the atmosphere of his garden. Close to the City Hall. To see and review according to the temporary exhibitions.

  • Room very spacious, nice, although located in the city centre, but nostalgic elegant style of the room. The hot issue here, the hotel complimentary breakfast and kept apologizing to me. Thank you so much.
