An amazing collection of classical sculptures, illustrating Lyon's Italian connection. Grandiose but at a human dimension.

Not the best art gallery I've been in but if it's raining it's a good place to go. Some of the paintingso are hung so that the shadow of the frames are cast upon them....really not acceptable in a gallery. 8 euro to get in.

This is a lovely world class art museum in the center of Lyon. It’s not the Louvre, but it has a nice collection of works. We enjoyed our morning here. It’s layed out nicely with clear directions, and the air conditioning works well.

Located near the Opera where the commercial precinct becomes more institutional and monumental the Museum occupies an ald benedictine Monastery. This is not made apparent by the structure of the building and other denotations. It houses a charming cafeteria and in essence it is a...More
