“Fun, interesting museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

We really enjoyed this museum in the old town area of Lyon. It had a wide range of miniatures, and on the lower floors, most had been used in famous movies. This made it a lot of fun for adults and kids. We really liked the Star Wars miniatures in particular. The museum is spread over several floors and you had to make sure to follow the signs to all the rooms on each floor, as it was sometimes hard to see where they were. Also, there was an elevator for those with trouble walking up the many flights of stairs and if you have trouble walking you should search it out. Interestingly enough, the first rooms of the museum were not as interesting as later rooms, so don't let the first rooms dissuade you from going further. It is well worth the effort.

“Fascinating Museum of Miniture movie sets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Stumbled upon this seemingly little museum in old Lyon, inside a treasure-trove of miniture movie sets, and dioramas, movie memorbilia and more. Spread over 4 floors in a medieval building, it's not as small as it seems!

“Very interesting museum - incredible works”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

If you like movies then this is the museum for you. The collection looks like it's been put together by someone with a passion and love for the movies. There are also a number of floors dedicated to miniature scenes and you really appreciate the amount of work that goes into making them. My highlight was the top floor and the miniature of Maxims restaurant in Paris. You can use your Lyon city card to gain free entrance.
