Lyon Museum of Contemporary Art (Musée d'art Contemporain de Lyon)
Based in the Cité Internationale district by the river Rhône, Lyon’s Museum of Modern Art (Musée d'Art Contemporain de Lyon) showcases contemporary artworks by an international collection of artists. Established in 1984, it also shows work by local emerging artists and focuses on current trends in the art world by aiming to hold temporary exhibitions by artists who create original art for the museum. The artists are given the freedom to experiment within the blank walls that are theirs to claim at MAC. With three enormous floors of space, every temporary exhibition sees a complete transformation of its stage. 

The Lyon Museum of Modern Art cares for more than 1,079 pieces of art, which includes works from both its temporary exhibitions and the impressive permanent collection. Housed in a 1930s mansion designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano, MAC Lyon also has its own restaurant, the Café du Musée, with a terrace overlooking Parc de la Tête, and a well-curated bookstore.
