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.

A museum full of information, props, sets and costumes from real movies both in France and internationally. Interesting to learn more about what goes on behind the scenes. Movie buffs will love it. Plus it is free with the city card which is great!

You need to give at least 1:30 hours here to enjoy it. There are 8 rooms to see from the scenes of movie to model of characters from famous Hollywood movies like X men, Harry Potter and Alien. Miniature are amazing look so real.
