Science Museum
“A personal favorite. The newest Lyon museum has changing temporary exhibitions covering both ethnology and natural history. The location is right at the meeting point of the Saone and Rhone rivers. Family-friendly with lots to see on any given day. Do not miss going to the terrasse on the top floor. Easily accessible by bicycle or public transport (Tram T1 stop). Closed on Mondays, open late on Thursdays.”
