  • We enjoy a good puppet museum but this wasn't it. Very small, not well lit, and too much crammed into the space. We used our Lyon City Card (GREAT VALUE!) for free entry but even so just didn't like.....  more »
  • Cute little museum inside a souvenir shop. Host was very nice. Interesting collection inside of puppets and historical explanation on multiple language of Guignol.  more »

  • Small, claustrophobic, dark, and weird basement of a museum. It is kinda of kitschy and a throwback to the old animatronic days. Could definitely use some upgrades and more space, but it seems like a genuine, work of passion by the owner. Doesn't take much time to pop in there and the price is right so I'd recommend it.
  • Beautiful piece of arts!!
