Hi! There's quite a bit to do in Lyon, not much for children that I can think of. There is an indoor adventure playground place with very good French food in the attached resteraunt, a swimming pool on la Rue de la Mer, and the river is good for picnics. Hope that helps!

Have a look on that website, you will find answers to your questions :

Visiting the old Lyon with children is fun because it is like an adventure : try the "traboules" that are hidden passage through buildings. You'll only to ask for the map of the traboule at the tourist office and it will be like a game ! I don't know how old your children are, but you can also visit the city by bike, or bike along the 2 rivers, we have an almost free renting system, check this site :

The museums are very child friendly, particularly the "Musée de l'imprimerie" (they organise workshop for kids, but they may be a langage difficulty). There is an other museum that children ususally like : "musée de la miniature", have a look on this :
