Wasn't sure what to expect from this museum, but so glad I visited! I learned a lot about how effects used to be done in movies, and the old sets/props/costumes were fun to look at. The miniature scenes were incredibly detailed and very cool. Worth the visit!

The place is not easy to find, but it is popular. Lots of old movie props and lots of stairs, but the topper is the miniatures that are mind-blowing in detail

On other trippers' advice l went here and really enjoyed it. The Parfum exhibit is a bit creepy when you know the story line. Interesting building in itself. Part of lyon city card so free if you have it.

After the sheer enormity of the Musee des Confluences yesterday it was so good to spend time at this great little museum in the vielle ville. Over eight floors you see some amazing cinematic props, costumes, tricks, illusions etc and the final two floors contain wonderfully detailed miniature sets.

Lots of movie stuff, actual models, costumes and props used in movies, and cool to see how fake some look in real life where-as in the movie were so cool. Also the miniature settings and miniature objects were pretty interesting and fun to look at, the level of detail that went into these small items. There are not many museums... More

An odd mixture of miniature creations and props uses in films. Some props are rather scary but my teenage niece loved it. To go if people are bored with historical cultural tours as it is unusual.
