frankly spoken - I've never seen such a tremendous, beautiful collection of handcrafted artwork before - several floors of miniatures representing unlimited creativity of their builders. Plus a lot of original movie scenes, figures etc. - plenty of time required to really indulge everything. Even our children didn't have problems in staying for two hours as there's so much to...

Miniatures museum Had a one day stop in Lyon and since it was so highly recommended ( and because I love models etc) we decided to check out the miniatures museum. The museum in located in Vieux Lyons which is a must see anyway if you're in the city. The narrow cobblestone streets and plethora of beautiful churches and cathedrals... More

I took my two daughters and niece to this museum in july 2016. It was a lot of fun! My kids are at an age when they don't want to see museums and churched anymore, so I am constantly looking for alternatives so we can compromise. The robot Alien they have there is amazing!! If you are a fan...worth checking... More

We arrived quite late in the day but the staff allowed us to go quickly around the museum - we had about 30 mins inside and would have liked more! It's fantastic! Such a cool collection and so interesting. We loved learning all about the special effects and studying the miniatures. Get the Lyon City card and get involved!

We took our cinema-mad 16yo son to this and he went wild with excitement. With real props from many of his favourite movies (Lord of the Rings, Aliens, Jurassic Park, Star Wars), he had a fantastic time. The highlight for him was the triceratops from Jurassic Park (remember the one who got sick?). Highlight for me was the actual 9... More

For movies amateurs, but also for anyone interested in reproduction of miniature settings, extremely interesting, splendid displays, a private museum that has to be encouraged

I went 3-4 times there. It's interesting, and most familly I bring there like it, but I also saw the price going up, and it became expensive for what it is... I still recommend to go there.

Thank Blue L
