Museum of Fine Arts of Lyon Reviews
Lots to see over multiple floors in a beautiful old building, with very friendly and helpful staff. From the anatomically accurate sculptures to the gaudy religious artwork to (finally) the real art..... more »
Relatively inexpensive with an extensive collection. Located in a beautiful building. We enjoyed a leisurely stroll around. Not too busy. more »
In the middle of the city and very nice gallery with paintings and art spanning many centuries. From Ancient Egyptian to the most contemporary. Set out on three floors it can be explored relatively rapidly or more slowly depending on the amount of time one has. An audio tour is also available. The pretty courtyard at the entrance is a nice place to relax.
Very interesting collections in an beautiful and charming 17th century abbey. Beautiful court and the chapel with older elements was converted into a sculpture exhibition hall. Very impressive.
