The unusual layout of this museum (free entry with City card - located next to the amphitheatres) spirals downwards from the entrance and means you don't missing anything. It also means that access is easy for wheelchairs and baby strollers.
It covers the ancient history of Lyon. Clips from films are shown on big screens to illustrate points... as these are almost all American films and subtitled in French, understanding them is easy! Exhibits are labelled in French and English and audio guides were free of charge in several languages.
There are are other technological toys, using Xbox Knect, augmented reality, etc adding to the interest. You need a child/teenager for some of these to work out how to use them as the instructions are not always clear!
If I had to single out the thing I liked best it would be the mosaics.
