Archeology yielded rich troves of Lyon's ancient past and the artefacts are very well lit, captioned and displayed. I also enjoyed the modern architecture and its airy spaces although the whole museum is underground.

An inexpensive informative way to learn about the early history of Lyon (Lugdunum). The included audio guide was very informative and the displays were well preserved/restored. A good way to spend a couple of hours.

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.

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.
