We ducked into this museum while killing time waiting for an area tour to start. We were really surprised that this museum has multiple floors and a really interesting range of both minatures and moive paraphenalia. Great stop for movie buffs and also quite interesting for kids who might have tired of "old churches". I would strongly recommend this as... More

We thought this would provide brief entertainment, but were enthralled. There is so much to see, and just about all of it is wonderful. There are miniature sets, complete in every detail, artificial dead rats and dogs, weapons, gory body parts (artificial!), and even a giant Alien monster. It's worth every cent of the admission. Prepare to be amazed.

I was hesitant to pay the 9€ entry but it was worth it! This museum has wonderful modern displays. The props are from hollywood (as the many signs around the museum remind you) and the information is displayed clearly as to which films they are from. Cons: There are a lot of stairs and not everything is translated into english.... More

An extensive collection of props, costumes & masks actually used in movies such as Star Wars, Gladiator, IRobot, The Chemist, Planet of the Apes, Silence of the Lambs, & many more. The scale miniature scenes were very well done & would appeal to any miniaturist. The museum is located in a very old building & it was interesting just to... More

I was happily surprised with this museum because from the outside it looks very small, but once you actually get to the exhibit you realize there is a lot to see. And the building itself is beautiful, a typical one from old Lyon. It was my first time in a cinema and miniature museum and I loved it. Many articles... More

For anyone interested in films, set design, properties, fake firearms, torsos, Sci-Fi: so much packed into so little space, and really fascinating (though a touch gory) for kids - don't have nightmares!!!

The size of the collection really surprised me, especially given the fact that the museum lies inside a traboule. I was able to recognize a lot of famous scenes and props from many films, even the exhibition on the first floor (which was a French film). One of my favorite parts was the miniature scenes of famous restaurants and places... More

This is a cool museum with lots to see and if you by the Lyon City Card, entry is free. The collection includes impressive miniature models and movie models/scenes.

It's a pretty good museum, especially if you are looking for something indoors while touring though Vieux Lyon. There are two parts - an interesting collection of props and artifacts from different movies. Then, a quite impressive collection of miniatures and miniature dioramas. Interesting for children and adults.

Our children are 13 and 10. We all enjoyed this attraction. Many things to see that we all can relate back to movies we have seen. The museum is located in the old lyon.
