Lyon’s Musée Miniature et Cinéma


Come explore the Musée Cinéma et Miniature in the heart of Vieux Lyon (Lyon’s old town). This museum unites miniaturist and founder Dan Ohlmann’s two passions: the magic of film special effects and the art of miniatures!

It’s two museums in one…
The only one of its kind in Europe!


Follow Us


This collection is the only one of its kind in Europe, built to honour the exceptional but little-known talents of the film industry’s most skilled artists. And what better place for it than Lyon, the birthplace of cinema?

Features 1000m² dedicated to cinema, with a guided tour of many legendary films from the 1960s to present day.


The permanent collection is unique in France and features more than 100 ultra-realistic miniature scenes.

Created by European artists, these works go beyond performance to become visual mirage boxes whose startlingly-realistic scenes bring back memories and evoke nostalgia.
