  Musée Gadagne
by Nemorino

This is a museum I really wanted to visit in Lyon, but when I was there it was unfortunately closed for the Easter holidays. Normally it is open Wednesday to Sunday from 11 am to 6:30 pm, closed Mondays and Tuesdays.

The part that sounds especially interesting to me is the Lyon History Museum, because of its "all-encompassing approach, from the Capital of the Gauls to the 21st century," which according to the museum's website makes it "a resource centre for understanding the city in all its facets: urban planning, economic, social, religious, political and cultural."
