Impressive collection of Roman artifacts found in Lyon, formerly Lugdunum during Roman times. Just a few euros for entrance, which included the audioguide. We spent over an hour here. The museum building itself was modern and uncluttered, and interesting in itself.

Hidden in the hill is collection of antiuities from Lyon. Comprehensive display of things that last several thousand years and more plus the ruin, The whole area has a history. It's on the top of a hill if you are going to walk.

4 floors of antiquities! Takes you right back 2000 years. So well displayed and interesting. Make plenty of time as this museum is well worth at least 1/2 a day to explore. Right next to the Forum.

I wish I had spent more time viewing all of the exhibits. The architect did a marvelous job capturing the intent of the many exhibits. The mosaics were exquisite.

We came from the packed square of the Basilique to this almost empty museum filled with Roman pottery, inscriptions, and wonderfully preserved mosaic floors. I am more amazed by the Roman culture every time I visit one of their sites or museums.

This museum is beautifully laid out, and the audioguide commentary gives a fascinating presentation of the history of Lyon back to when it was Lugdunum, the capital of the three Gauls and second only to Rome in importance.
