We took a visit here as 'it was something we had not done previously' when in Lyon, and assumed it would not really be our thing... We were really pleasantly surprised. Set over a few levels, there were not only costumes/props from cinema we had actually seen, but also some truly amazingly crafted miniatures! A few scary sections (with warning... More

Fantastic! Thoroughly enjoyed walking around the displays and for the price we were amazed at how much there was to see. Starting off with some replicated movie sets you move on to the memorabilia section with items, costumes and special effects from some of your favourite movies and tv shows. Finally there is a spectacular display of some of the... More

I went here in part because it was the third best rated site in TripAdvisor for Lyon. I found the museum to be interesting but I would put many other attractions higher. Having some knowledge of the types of films that use special effects is almost a requirement for enjoying the visit. I wasn't exactly sure in the end how... More

This museum has a large collection of cinema related things. The basement has some full scenarios. A lot of original cinema characters can be found such as gremlins, aliens, batman, and many more. A really nice place to visit, unless you do not like cinema

I liked the miniatures which when photographed up close actually looked like real room sets. The boys particularly likes the authentic cinema props as a lot of them were sci-fi film related (stargate, star wars etc)

I don't really have the time for the museum. Just visiting the entree libre area is still a lot of fun. The souvenir on display are so lovely. You can't help picking some for you own collection and also as little gifts.
