Musee Miniature et Cinema, Lyon
See exquisite miniatures and learn about movie special effects at Musee Miniature et Cinema, housed in a 15th-century architectural masterpiece. Inside the Maison des Avocats (House of Lawyers), you’ll find miniatures carved in minute detail. The museum is the brainchild of Dan Ohlmann, a cabinetmaker with a passion for detail that led to a career as one of the leading miniaturist artists in the world. Over 100 miniatures display hyper-realistic scenes of everyday life, such as a local market, a bedroom, or a salon complete with bookshelves and teacups. Continue to the second floor where you'll see the artists at work. Watch as a miniature takes shape under the steady hand of these resident artists. If you’re hungry for more magic, then don’t miss the film special-effects exhibit displayed in the other half of the historic building; the dynamic displays and reenactments reveal the trickery behind the camera. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Lyon holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Musee Miniature et Cinema and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

It's moving, interesting, everything that culture should bring every time. It was beautiful, moviegoers you will be conquered!

Hyper cool. Doesn't just have miniatures. In fact, most of it is cool props from movies. I'm sure everyone can find at least one or a few pieces that they love. A good afternoon for all ages. Also a great place for dates as you can spark conversation with each exhibit.
Amazing museum tucked away in Lyon inside a beautiful, old building. Packed full to the brim with amazing throwbacks to major movies, with some truly incredible sets, costumes, and props from all sorts of films from Alien to Batman to Pirates of the Caribbean. Not something to miss!
