Musée des Confluences 86 quai Perrache - 69002 Lyon 2ème

To begin with, the museum's architecture is incredible! It is made of glass, concrete and stainless steel and stands erect like a beacon on the headland, at the confluence of the Rhône and Saône rivers.
Such a building could only house an exceptional museum that of the confluence of scientific, technical and societal knowledge, encompassing Earth, humanity, history and geography. In other words, it is a door that opens out onto the world, the universe and knowledge in general. How fascinating is that! 
It opens up a whole host of possibilities and promises many a discovery!
This is an essential step in Lyon's cultural landscape. It has lots of surprises in store for us and is an opportunity to travel and grow.
