The museum is included in the Lyon CityCard and other than the receptionist not speaking very good English, I still found it very easy to find my way around as everything is signposted, and all the props have both English and French descriptions. The Museum...More

We were afraid that it might be a tourist trap, but on the contrary it is a very interesting museum for both children and seniors. It is a very rich and interesting collection, very well presented. Don' t miss it!

This is a must see for movie buffs! The top floor will amaze you with the detail of the miniature model rooms created by Dan Ohlmann, world-renowned miniaturist. Great place to get out of the weather.

Not what you would expect for a museum in Vieux Lyon but a respite from history and a film lovers delight. Great movie props, masks, and miniature scenes from a wide gamut of films from the past 30 years.

Strangely this fascinating museum does not show up on the top places to visit in Lyon. If you have any interest at all in movies, you will love the exhibits which are mostly of American films. It shows just how movies are made with a...More
