Transatlantic

From April 19 to September 1, 2013 at the Printing Museum. 
All aboard for a graphical adventure to discover the legendary cruises of yesteryear...

Transatlantic (Transatlantiques) invites you to take a trip into the intriguing world of legendary cruise liners thanks to the collections of the French Lines Association. 
From superb posters, including those from the Belle Époque period (our favourites) to luggage labels, not forgetting the luxury brochures of the transatlantic cruise ships, programmes for gala evenings, menus for dogs or free on-board newspapers.

This fascinating documentation provides an insight into the idle, high society life of the cruise passengers but also the behind-the-scenes existence of the on-board crew and the different aspects of life on the cruise liners.

Submerge yourself in the chic yet astonishing atmosphere of luxury cruises on prestigious liners. Sample the unique charm of a period in history, a frivolous and leisurely atmosphere, a bygone style and a certain art de vivre.

And while you're there, why not try your luck to see if you can win a transatlantic cruise.

Admission to the museum and exhibitions is included with the Lyon City Card.
