Musee Miniature Et Cinema - Review

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.

Musee Miniature Et Cinema, Lyon Reviews

  • An excellent place to visit in Lyon. If you have the city card then without a doubt you should visit this museum (and even if you pay regular admission, it is worth it). The selection of cinema artefacts is vast and interesting and if sheds a fun interesting light on movie special effects. There are props from major blockbusters as well as lesser know films. The miniature museum on the top floor is breathtaking, and the detail that the artists put into their works is amazing. The scenes are curious and fun. Overall this museum is well worth spending an hour or two in.

  • Very interesting museum! The first few floors of the museum are dedicated to movie props, such as masks, settings, creatures, etc. It was very exciting to see all these original pieces from well renown films. Also, there are descriptions of the process of filmmaking, particularly with respect to creating settings, animations, and creating settings. This was pretty informative and definitely adds to the experience of all the items you see in the museum. In the top sections of the museum are the miniature models. These are absolutely incredible!! The amount of detail in each one is amazing, which is why it makes sense it takes 6 months to over a year to make some of them. Pictures are also allowed everywhere, so you can bring back some memories.

  • Walked past it and went in. In the foyer there are enough items to get you interested. The cost was 9 euros from memory. The building is actually like a Hollywood backblock, many movies are made here. The miniatures and props are superb, and there are many French and American movies represented. Would I recommend? Yes, a absolutely

  • Absoluut amazing museum. Especially the miniatures, they are of such excellent quality full of rich details. A must visit even if you're not that much of a movie fan.

  • Entertaining place with a lot of objects from movie sets such as costumes, scripts and miniatures. The first floor is dedicated to the movie the perfume that fits great with the middle age vibe of St Jean.
