Portraits of Lyon
This exhibition gives visitors the key pointers for understanding the modern city. An overview of Lyon's history that combines historical and geographical data, symbolic and collector's items, fictitious testimonials, films and interactive models.
On the waterfront
Against a backdrop of ecological challenges and a new appetite for urban living, the Lyon History Museum proposes an exploration of the Saône and Rhône, the two rivers that flow through Lyon and form an integral part of its history and identity.
The Gadagne gardens
Located on the 4th floor, the hanging Gadagne gardens are a lovely place for a stroll or a rest. Sit down on a deckchair, close your eyes and listen to the lulling whisper of the water flowing through the cool 17th century caves.
