It’s a bit of a hike up the hill, perched next to the Roman theater, but well worth it for lovers of Roman artifacts. Fabulous mosaics presented so you can stand next to them or above and one of the best collections of epigraphy I’ve...More
Situated alongside the Roman Amphitheatres in Fourviere this museum must rank as one of the most imaginative of museum designs. Set into the hillside and now covered in vegetation it is barely visible.
Starting at the top floor one moves from open gallery to open...More
This is a very good museum showcasing the archeological findings from excavations in and around Lyon; mosaics, sculpture, and furnishings. Most of the items are from the Roman period. The museum is next to the excavated amphitheater and odeon. Would definitely go back.
This museum, adjacent to the most significant Roman ruins in Lyon, is well worth your time. It focuses very much on everyday life in the region, has some exemplary displays, and is a great antidote to the vaster and more grandiose collections you'll find in...More
Maybe we've just seen too many archaelogical museums, but this one does little more than present the artifacts by way of little written descriptions. If you like reading a lot of little descriptions, you'll like this museum. Two weeks on, all I'll likely remember is...More
Thoroughly enjoyed the exhibits and thematic layout of major centre in Roman times. Visit amphitheatre on site. 5 minutes to add basilica. Very short funicular ride from Vieux Lyon. Plan for whole lot 5 hours.

This museum contains a wealth of treasures but is not overwhelming. The mosaics in particular were fantastic and I was amazed at how recently some of these have been found in the Lyon area. Worth a visit
Ever read Asterix the Gaulois? The comix? Ever wondered who lived in France before Julius Caesar lead his troops over the Alps? Ever had questions about their art, their beliefs?
Well... come to Lyon, France, and visit the Museum!
The building itself is hidden in...More
After visiting the two preserved Roman theaters this museum was a terrific way to grasp the significance of the entire setting. The artifacts are amazing and were presented in a very clear and understandable manner.

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 railway website is very good . Also,
I found Uber very good and reasonably priced when I was in Lyon.
