Musee Des Beaux Arts, Lyon Reviews

Google+
  • Pretty good place. Got some nice sculptures and some paintings big in nice. Not many famous names, but can spot a few such as Renoir, Sisley and Matisse. Lot of places nearby to eat and drink. The museum can take up 2-3 hours as it is not that big. Passes are available which you can share amongst several museums of Lyon.

  • Stunning Museum with various masterpieces. Museum also include a vast selection of Greek, Roman and Egyptian Artifacts. Enjoyed it more than the Louvre as it is less crowded and it gives you the possibility to enjoy the masterpieces with more tranquility . Free entrance with the Lyon city Card

  • A really nice place to come and sit, read a book. Plenty of shade when the centre of Lyon is hot, which is often in the summer. Great painting collection on show inside, all the big name's. At the right time can be very quiet, so get here early.

  • A place with lots a beautiful piece of arts. The staff welcomes you very warmly. The little shop at the end is quite memorable itself.

  • Fabulous collection of impressionist artwork that is a must see for art lovers visiting Lyon. We enjoyed a relaxing lunch on the balcony and looked around the gallery afterwards. Would definitely recommend the audio guide for more information about the art.
