Lyon loves museums
Culture and museums
The city of Lyon has many museums of all kinds to satisfy our thirst for knowledge. A number of essential cultural attractions offer a chance to get to know the city better, like the Musée des Confluences, Lugdunum Museum and Roman theatres, and the Musée Gadagne. Others highlight local expertise, such as the workshops and museums related to silk, the Musée Lumière and the Musée des Tissus (Textile Museum). Still others, more unusual museums inspire curiosity, such as the Musée Cinéma et Miniatures (Miniature and Cinema Museum) and the Musée de l'illusion (Museum of Illusions).
Museums today are constantly evolving and living spaces, which open their doors wide to share their collections and knowledge with as many people as possible. With temporary exhibitions, videos, interactive games, guided tours, creative workshops, conferences, shows, night-time openings and more, there are many ways to spread the joy of knowledge. Bring your children to the museum: workshops, game booklets and fun tours are also provided for children to learn while enjoying themselves.
