Musee des Confluences, Lyon

The Musée des Confluences is a science centre and anthropology museum which opened on 20 December 2014 in the 2nd arrondissement of Lyon, (Rhône), France. It is located at the southern tip of the Presqu'île at the confluence of the Rhône and the Saône, adjacent to Autoroute A7, and comprises part of a larger redevelopment project of the Confluence quarter of Lyon. The deconstructivist architectural design, said to resemble a floating crystal cloud of stainless steel and glass, was created by the Austrian firm Coop Himmelb(l)au.

  • Multiple exhibition rooms on diverse topics. I saw biodiversity, life and death, head garments across cultures, technology, insects, and Japanese folk religion. The trade-off of this approach is that exhibitions on broad topics (e.g. biodiversity and technology) cannot provide enough depth. The architecture itself is also quite interesting.
  • Awesome place to visit. We went there during the weekend. You can pay for a ticket to visit the exposition or just climb (elevators or escalator all the way to the fourth floor where you are rewarded with a spectacular view of the city. And the building's architecture is very modern, all reflecting glass. Reminds me almost of a giant spaceship. A must see in Lyon
