The Confluences Museum

Proud heir of 5 centuries of history, the Musée des Confluences in Lyon today houses 3.5 million objects and specimens from the natural sciences, humanities, as well as science and technology. It is located at the junction, or “confluence,” of the Rhône and Saône rivers, where this fabulous museum stands. Its impressive architecture is the work of the Austrian architectural firm Coop Himmelb(l)au. From the outside, the museum changes appearance depending on your viewing angle. Bathed in light, its majestic hall, the Crystal, opens onto the city, a real invitation to discovery! In 2011, the museum was awarded the title of Musée de France by the Ministry of Culture and Communication. It welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.
