Sculptures are made to be looked at, appreciated by moving around them to take in their sensuality, energy, curves or movement... But what if you tried to take in their very substance?

With this exhibition, the Musée des Beaux-Arts (Museum of Fine Arts) makes a break with tradition, inviting visitors to experience something new, through the sense of touch!

Ten reproductions of sculptures, from Antiquity to the present day, offer a different, more intimate way to discover materials, with their grain and fineness, as well as sculpture techniques. 

This alternative way to visit the museum is inspired by tours regularly proposed by the Museum for visually impaired people. 

A new experience to try! 

Admission to Musée des Beaux-arts and its exhibition is included in the Lyon City Card.

Collector's original visuals and voice have made it a big hit in Lyon. It offers locals a different view of their city: more modern, more urban, and even a little offbeat. In just a few years, this guide has become the repertoire of “places to be”. It opens doors to somewhat secret worlds – just the way we like them in Lyon.

Isabelle, our editor born and bred in Lyon! She was born in Sainte-Foy-lès-Lyon in fact, studied in Lyon and now lives here. Territorial? Absolutely not! She loves travelling, widening her horizons, meeting new people and enjoys a change of scenery (without snow, if possible). Isabelle is curious and a people person, two attributes that often go hand in hand! Her favourite colour is green and her motto "a day without laughter is a day wasted!"
