This was interesting to get an insight into how life was before, but the circuit of rooms was endless and 3/4 of the way in we decided we had had enough.

Plenty to see. Learned a lot about Lyon! From Roman times to post war immigration. Nice building too. Staff very helpful and friendly. You can go out and get back in again on the same ticket in the same day, so even managed to fit in a restaurant at lunchtime!

We thought this would be a quick visit but it goes on for so many levels. It gives a long view of the development and bloody history of the city of Lyon from Roman times to the Révolution.

We came for the puppet museum and stayed for the history museum! The puppet museum is very interesting and has lots of different kinds of puppets. Some were a little spooky to my 3.5 year old but he experienced it all. They had puppets for the kids to try and a mini stage that was fun. The history museum was great. It has 30(!) rooms telling the history of Lyon from prehistoric days to the present day. In every other room, they had a children’s activity set up, in one room it was about crests and kids could create their crest. In another it was weaving patterns using plastic templates. The activity related to the objects in that gallery. We spent two hours there in total between the two museums.
