A unique concept
The Musée Cinéma et Miniature presents two rare and exclusive collections :
first, over 100 miniature scenes exquisitely crafted by world-renowned miniaturists and reproducing daily life settings with hyperrealism;
second, a film exhibition, one-of-its-kind in Europe, that focuses on special effects techniques. Featuring over 300 original film props and artefacts, this educational display uncovers the magic behind the greatest film studios.
A living place :
Staff artists are daily at work to create new scale miniatures and restore genuine film props in their workshop.
The display information is available in French and in English.
A landmark building
Ideally located in the heart of “Vieux-Lyon” (the city’s historical centre), the museum is housed in the “Maison des Avocats” (Lawyers’ House), a famed 16th century building that is now a UNESCO world heritage site.
The collections extend over five stories, totalling almost 2,000 m² of exhibition space .
