  • On the site of the former quarters of the Gestapo, a museum dedicated to the history of the Resistance during the Second World War. And that's a good thing, because Lyon was 'the capital of the Resistance.' It was interesting to discover the impact of the war in Lyon in general, as well as on these Jewish citizens and also on the Lyonnais who were deported during the war. We discover stories of real people, we see real letters and other documents, we reconstructed a street from the time of the war, and we can consult for example a book with the names of all the deportees. We talk about how the Resistance organized itself, again with documents and period objects. It's a must-see.

  • Informative museum without being too heavy. Made with a teenager who endured this almost imposed visit. Instructive and puts events in context. Light price and reasonable duration.

  • This place was so well done! The history and how it was displayed was very well thought out. I let off the fifth star was because they didn’t put all the info on their website. We knew it would all be in French, and that you could get an audio guide for 1 Euro per person. Great!! Unfortunately have to had your ID on you to rent it. So we were going to do the app. I have an iPhone and didn’t bring my headphone adapter. Some part was my bad, some I wish was described better. All in all, still was so pleased to have the opportunity to visit the museum. Would go back, this time just more prepared.
  • Great museum with a lot of ww2 relics, I takes you trough the world war out of the perspective of Lyon, for 1 euro you will get an English audio guide that will explain you every detail! It takes aprox. 1-2 hours. I recommend to do a city trip trough Lyon first, that way you can recognize all places mentioned in the tour!
