The ampitheater itself is impressive enough, with it's main section, as well as a second, smaller theater, both of which are accessible for free. Then you add on an amazing museum built into the hillside which itself a work of art inside, and a collection...More

The presentation of the exhibits in the museum was excellent, using a lot of audio-visual tools to enhance the experience. The mosaics are just amazing! We also really enjoyed the large section on the games played by both children and adults back in the days...More

This is a must for any student of Roman history. They even have a pump, one of the few that have been found. Lyon was basically the administrative center for all of Gaul. It is adjacent to the Roman theater.

This museum is outstanding. We were astonished by how good it was. It’s five or so floors full of Roman treasures most of which are very well arranged and presented. The mosaics are easily the best we’ve ever seen anywhere. Some of them are huge...More

It's a bit of a trek but if you're visiting the Basilica anyway you can't miss this. Loads of greats exhibits and mosaics and great views of the amphitheatre.

I spent about an hour and a half here. Very good audiovisual guide. What surprised me was how accessible the exhibits were. They have an excellent variety of displays and I particularly enjoyed the section regarding funeral rites. Worth visiting.

The electricity was out so we could only walk around the ruins and the stands. A band was setting up. Definitely seems like a fantastic place to be at for a concert.

This museum is IN Lyon, so no need to take a day trip. There is a roman museum in Vienne, St Romain-en-Gal, but this has its own Tripadvisor listing, and you might get a better response posting there. Otherwise, the French... More
