    Magnificent museums, it is possible to spend a whole day or a few hours there. You will have the choice between temporary or permanent exhibitions, wonderfully well documented, with interaction and a staging of the routes that plunges you directly into the universe of the theme treated. Congratulations to the teams of this museum for your work which appeals to all ages!

    All my friends that I took to the Musée des Confluences very much appreciated this Museum. Usually we arrive around 10 a.m. We take a break by going to eat at the excellent restaurant on site and see the Saône flowing into the Rhône. We return to the Museum in the afternoon. There is also a fast food bar in the Museum.
