  • Worth the visit. We did it on a wet day and it was ideal. Fascinating rooms and a really intriguing place.  more »
  • A beautiful museum that offers a beautiful view of Lyon. Very nice panoramic bar but quite expensive. I really liked the variety of temporary and permanent collections, there is something for everyone.

  • Great building & location with tram stop directly outside main entrance. Had to queue in cold outside to get in through airport style security. Good range of temporary & permanent exhibitions. Worth a visit if you have a few days in Lyon.
  • A modern, well-designed and extremely interesting science and ethnography museum. I loved the most the rooms explaining the origin of Earth and the evolution of species including humans. The installations give you a very clear idea of what is natural selection, sexual selection, convergence and other natural phenomena. There is a restaurant in the upper floor where you can eat on a terrace with a beautiful view on the rivers.
