Imagine in miniature -- I only do so in my dreams. But seeing the incredible detail in the showcases, you begin to understand that few masters are capable of doing such work.

The costumes, props and miniatures are a must for any movie fan in Lyon to see. The woman at the desk was kind enough to admit us at 535 even though the usual cutoff is 530. Enjoy!

A huge museum in a small space stuffed full of amazing film ephemera. The miniatures on the top floors are truly stunning in their precision. Anyone interested in how films are made should not miss this place.

Before arriving in Lyon and looking through the available museums with my Lyon City Card I had never heard of this museum, this place deserves to be much more renowned! The old building in the middle of vieux Lyon is a delight in itself with...More

I think you are safe walking up. We were there during the Women's World Cup this summer when there were loads of people in Vieux Lyon and had no trouble walking in. Enjoy the Musee du Cinema.
