We love impressionists and there are plenty of these here. The museum is deceptively large. Good value for money.

lots of works by lesser-known artists; before you go into the museum, sit in the tranquil and attractive gardens (free); once inside, the toilets are clean (lift to 3rd floor); the exhibits are well curated

This museum has a wonderful collection, much like the Louvre, but without the masses of tourists. Wheelchair accessible and allows free entry for the disabled and companion. Be sure to have your handicap placard with you. Highly recommend.

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