Lyon Musee des Beaux Arts

This elegant art museum, the Lyon Musee des Beaux Arts, housed in a 17th century palace designed for the Royal Abbess of the Dames de Saint Pierre, and later remodeled to outrageous heights by Louis XIV, displays one of the finest collections in all France.

More than 70 rooms display an outstand array of antiquities and artwork, including more than 600 Ancient Egyptian pieces, rare Asian ceramics, and the second-largest numismatic collection in the country. Thirty-five rooms are dedicated to European paintings, from classic artists including El Greco and Rembrandt, to more modern masters such as Picasso and Renoir. The shady sculpture garden is often softly lit for visitors on special summer evenings.

The museum also offers temporary exhibitions, described on their French-language website, as well as activities and events for adults and children.
