One of my favorite museums in Lyon! They have some really cool exhibits, and I wish I could’ve stayed there longer. 3 hours didn’t feel like enough. It also has a garden with a nice view!

Take the Metro to the museum on a hot summer day for a fantastic experience. Enjoy the displays and then take time for lunch.
