Institut Lumiere - Review

The museum is a tribute of love – Maurice Trarieux-Lumière, the grandson of Louis Lumiere (father of modern cinema), started this place in 1982 in honor of the his grandfather and great uncle (AugusteLumiere). It aims to conserve various cinematic art, and to impart cinematic education through education, publishing and exhibitions. That’s why it’s also known as Cinema’s Living Museum.

If you’re a film buff, it’s utterly fascinating – particular because of the presentation, which is designed to take visitors through the personal perspectives of cinema’s forefathers. One section is devoted to the invention and evolution of cinema; another to the technical achievement of cinema’s forefathers and their lives; there’s even a room dedicated to Antoine Lumiere, the father of the creators of Cinema. There’s a park here where one of the earliest films was shot: Workers Leaving the Lumière Factory.

Also to see are the Park (relax while you check out Inventor’s Alley), the Porch, the First Film Warehouse, the Cinematograph Square and the Filmmaker’s Wall.

Institut Lumiere, Lyon Reviews

  • I love cinema and am a huge fan of the same. That was one of the reasons I wanted to visit the Musée Lumiere. I was a little disappointed as it was a tiny place for a relatively expensive price of 6 EUR. There is only some equipment they used and the content they produced. It is essentially their house turned into a museum with just two floors. I even though I was a cinephile got done with the entire museum in around 45 minutes. It seemed a tad bit let down.

  • Very interesting place with many great artifacts and a look into film's past. They have English audio tours, but they aren't super needed for those with a bit of knowledge of the Lumiere brothers.

  • Great museum! Even though I didn't understand the French descriptions, a lot of things are self-explanatory. I loved watching the old film footage from all over the world!

  • Really educational but they should have more information in English, almost all is only written in French

  • The audio guide is with rich professional explanations. If you choose that, should have at least 2 hours to finish the trip. I hope the information board on the upper floor could have a English version. Really worthy of a visit in general!
