Welcome to the site of the Lyon Museum of Fine Arts.
The Museum of Fine Arts is one of the largest French and European museums. Located in the heart of Lyon, between the Rhône and Saône rivers, it is found in a magnificent building dating from the 17th century.
The collections are exhibited in over 70 rooms and offer visitors an outstanding sample of art from antiquity to contemporary art. The museum is regularly enriched, through an active acquisition policy that relies on donors, art lovers, collectors and the descendants of artists.
Our museum is a living entity. One hundred and thirty employees work here every day to welcome you to the permanent collections and temporary exhibitions.
We hope that the discovery of this site, which will be continuously developed, will incite you to come and share our enthusiasm.
