About Musee Miniature Et Cinema, Lyon

This could easily be one of the world’s best museums! The name might be a bit misleading – this place has nothing to do with Lilliput cinema. Rather, it hosts two kinds of exhibits – one of miniature art and the other of special effects in film. Don’t ask me why that combo works but it does, and it’s amazing, just fascinating.

The Miniatures:

These are set out in two types of exhibits. The first are about a hundred painstakingly crafted miniatures of scenes from everywhere – prisons, museums, Zen Temples hospitals, towers, palaces, kitchens – all carefully lighted, built from original materials and faithful to the original textures, and all of the work of master miniaturist and museum curator Dan Ohlmann. Dan says that he built all of the by research and measurement of real location and each scene could take months to reproduce!

The second is devoted to arts and crafts in miniature like leather making, silversmith, origami, chiselled eggs – the sheer number of hours that must have gone into this is insane.       

The Cinema:

Ever wondered how the movies manage all those mind-boggling special effects? This freaky museum explains it all through hundreds of models, artefacts, documents and lots and lots of layman level explanation. A lot of the items on display here were actually used in the movies like Aliens, Independence Day and Minority Report. And of course – there’s a number of miniature film sets to die for from movies like Avatar, 2012 and Star Wars.

  • Very impressive museum which massive collection of movie items and fantastic miniature sets. It does not relate to Lyon however it worth a visit. Can you believe attached photos are miniature? Go check the museum!

  • Very cool!! Didnt expect that. Indeed the museum looks much smaller from the ouside. And the miniatures are incredible

  • This is one of my favorite museums I've ever visited. Plenty of movie props and their context. None of them are fake, but the most amazing thing to see were the mini sets. If you place your phone camera near the opening the perspective is perfect to look like its real.

  • More interesting than expected. A good diversion if time on your hands.

  • Museum you have to do in Lyon. Love all the expositions ! All the details are amazing , miniatures look real. And be careful at the corner you can meet the alien queen's!
