This has been one of the key events in the latter part of 2014!
The very latest addition to Lyon's great contemporary museums prepares to open to the public, museums which alone are enough to justify a trip to Lyon.
So of course, we wouldn't miss this event for anything!
To begin with, the museum's architecture is incredible! Referred to as the Crystal Cloud, it is made of glass, concrete and stainless steel and stands erect like a beacon on the headland, at the confluence of the Rhône and Saône rivers.
Such a building could only house an exceptional museum
that of the confluence of scientific, technical and societal knowledge, encompassing Earth, humanity, history and geography. In other words, it is a door that opens out onto the world, the universe and knowledge in general. How fascinating is that!
It opens up a whole host of possibilities and promises many a discovery!
This is a new and essential step in Lyon's cultural landscape. It has lots of surprises in store for us and is an opportunity to travel and grow.
Access to the Museum and its exhibitions is included in the Lyon City Card, which also enables users to beat the queue!
In parallel to the museum's permanent itinerary there are temporary exhibitions, important artistic and scientific conferences, world music concerts, thematic weeks and various events.
Late night opening until 10 pm every Thursday, with special activities.
The museum also boasts a bookshop store, brasserie and café.
