A nice collection of movie props of star wars, aliens / predator, back to the future, planet of the apes to name a few. Especially the suits worn by the actual actors were really impressive.

The best thing about this place is the location. Great chance to view a lyonais house from the inside. The miniatures nice for younger people, the movie outfits for movie fans.

Whether you're a Virgo like me, or just interested in anything miniature, you'll love this place. Doll houses, toy railroad landscapes, tiny battlefields full of tin soldiers, and historical re-creations of important events -- plus scale-models of objects created for films, from space ships to street scenes. Wonderful rainy-day activity for all the family.

This little museum is located in the Vieux Lyon and thus is popular with tourists, so much so that it can get a little cramped. There are interesting replicas of movie scenes and replicas of famous objects from all sorts of movies. On the upper floor, there are about 100 miniature scenes some of which are quite remarkable for their... More

The museum is located in the historic center of the city, so it could be visited while on a walk in the rest of the city. It had many things to see and interesting details for the making of the movies, the cast etc. The last part of it includes a miniature collection which was quite nice. Enjoyed the visit... More

Buy tickets €9 per adult and allow 2 hrs to visit. Extremely good if you know a few movies. Minature sets handmade to perfect proportions. The teenagers thoroughly enjoyed it. Lots of stairs but they had a lift and a toilet on each floor. Some seating available for resting during video shows in some of the exhibits. Some "no enfants"... More

I'm not into movie memorabilia, but my teens thought this was a very interesting collection. The explanation of how special effects are created was well done. My favorite part, however, was the upper floor collection of miniature scenes. Incredible workmanship and creativity. Well worth a visit.
