This museum looks tiny and kitsch from the front entrance but it's a trove of original movie and TV props, costumes, maquettes, miniatures and prosthetics from a host of well known productions - all originals used during production. It's set over several floors in a typical old town Lyonnais building. Potentially scary or unsuitable exhibits for small people are in separate, clearly labelled rooms. There's lots of information about different production and effects techniques although we did think some of the concepts would have benefited from a short video demonstration. Finally, the top floor is devoted to the museum owner's personal passion which is miniature diaorama/scene setting, some depicting famous locations and others are simply pieces of artwork and imagination. Fascinating the closer you look and immerse yourself in their tiny world.

This museum is a nice diversion from the ancient architecture and history of Lyon, pulling you from Roman times to Star Wars with side trips to eras in between. I particularly enjoyed the sets reconstructed from the movie "Parfume, History of a Murder" that were scented with essence of rose to place you there with the rose petals.

Another memorable exhibit was the model of the dirigible ship used in filming Three Muskateers. There are many, many more.

Wow this is an amazing little museum. They've got all kinds of props, heavily from the 90s and early 2000s. Mrs Doubtfire's latex mask, tons of Aliens props, models of ships. It's an awesome little break in Vieux Lyon - you can do it in 45 minutes or spend hours there.

We came upon this wonderful little gem while exploring Vieux Lyon on foot during a hot summer day. Coming from Los Angeles, I didn’t expect to find so many amazing movie props and special effects in Lyon, France, of all places. But the museum didn’t disappoint. It was a fun experience for both my six-year-old child and me. Organized in different levels, you start at the bottom and make your way up through five stories in an old medieval building. The very top floor is dedicated to miniature set recreations (mostly of French films) which was a neat thing to see. The rooms are air-conditioned which provided for a nice break from the heat outside. Note that not all rooms are child-appropriate but they’re marked accordingly to prevent you from causing any permanent damage to your little ones. My favorite selfie moment was with nothing else than the Alien Queen herself (see picture attached!)

Enjoyed the museum. Could be boring if you're not into films and props, however it was amazing seeing the props from the films of our childhood, like Mrs. Doubtfire's mask. And the miniatures are amazing, the level of detail!!
