Lyon is an extremely family-friendly destination because it not only offers a range of cultural activities, with structures or workshops and visits for the kids, but also lots of green spaces with fun activities. 

Why is Lyon such a family-friendly city to visit?

Lyon is an extremely family-friendly destination because it not only offers a range of cultural activities, with structures or workshops and visits for the kids, but also lots of green spaces with fun activities. What’s more, Lyon’s major cultural events are wonderful for families: the Biennial of Dance parade and the Festival of Lights are perfect for absolutely anyone!

 

How should a family explore Lyon’s rich heritage?

The Lumière Museum (named after the Lumière brothers) is a real must: it presents the invention of the cinematograph is an amusing way. The Gadagne Puppet Museum is ideal for a family outing and presents a truly magnificent collection. In the same building, you can explore the heritage of the city at Lyon’s museum of history. And while you visit Old Lyon, don’t forget to take your kids to the Guignol puppet museum – he’s a prominent local figure! If you visit Fourvière, after you’ve admired the view of Lyon, you could try out the Accrobranche treetop adventure with your children, located below the basilica. Lastly, to really appreciate the city as a whole, the banks of the Rhône are perfect, with children’s play areas all along.

What would you say are your favourite family activities in Lyon?

The TNG, New Generation Theatre in Vaise, has an excellent programme for the family, including poetic shows that blend genres, object theatre, dance and opera. Lyon’s Auditorium also presents some extremely interesting concerts for children. In summer, the Tête d'Or Park is a wonderful venue offering a wide range of original activities for kids, such as a glimpse backstage at the zoo, the Wednesday Guignol puppet show, and paddle boat rides on the lake. If you fancy getting out of Lyon, then why not spend a night in a tree house at the Lac des Sapins, it’s a magical experience!
 Finally, for family friendly dining in Lyon, head to the Ka'fête ô mômes near the Place des Terreaux!
