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

Well worth an hour or so , I went with wife and 3 children, 2,4 and 6 years. Fascinating for all ages. A look into a new world of minatures and film props.

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.

I was skeptical, at first, but this place had some really cool stuff. Some of the movie props they managed to get (Harry Potter's wand!!!) were quite surprising. The museum is also organized in a way that allows you to learn about how different types of props, models and special effects were used in movies. It was also hard to... More

We had such a great time visiting this museum. Very educational too for kids on how the cinema works behind the scenes. Amazing place to spend an hour or 2 looking at so many familiar classic scenes and decor of movies and artefacts. A true Hollywood feel right in the centre of Lyon.

The miniatures are of an astounding quality. Made with an unbelievable attention to each tiny detail, they bring to life a money printing shop, an ancient library, an old hospital. An absolute must-visit.

Absolute magic. So clever. We could have spent hours admiring the miniatures. We didn't expect to enjoy this so much.
