Great place to escape the heat for a while. Three floors of exhibits, with the first floor apparently the internal collection, and the two higher floors for temporary exhibitions. I was especially impressed with Adel Abdessemed's work on the top floor, which is imposing, but...More

This is certainly an interesting museum, especially if you enjoy the avant-garde! There were really good displays and some really strange ones. The day we visited, there were several school groups touring and they seemed to be enjoying the visit. One or two exhibits allow...More

This exhibition "Los Angeles un fiction" was not the best I have seen. Very odd in my veiw and I have seen a lot. To much video and photography for my taste. However, a very ambitious exhibition but just not my cup of tea.

The MAC of Lyon has temporary exhibitions on three stories. If you live in Lyon for a longer period, Carte Musée gets you one year access to six museums (MAC, Beaux Arts , ...) for the price of three admissions.

I came here not knowing what exhibit was showing or that there is no permanent collection, but I was happy nonetheless. The Yoko Ono exhibit was wonderful - playful and interactive, but also gave an insight into her life in great depth. Your enjoyment of...More

I love modern art but this museum is a scam. The ONLY thing exhibited was Yoko Ono's temporary exhibition. I personally did not like it and I do not consider this art. Every one can do these kind of installations. More importantly, they did not...More
