The Musée des Confluences is a science centre and anthropology museum which opened on 20 December 2014 in the 2nd arrondissement of Lyon, (Rhône), France. It is located at the southern tip of the Presqu'île at the confluence of the Rhône and the Saône, adjacent to Autoroute A7, and comprises part of a larger redevelopment project of the Confluence quarter of Lyon. The deconstructivist architectural design, said to resemble a floating crystal cloud of stainless steel and glass, was created by the Austrian firm Coop Himmelb(l)au.By using our Lyon travel itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to Musee des Confluences and other attractions in Lyon.

Worth visiting. The permanent exhibition is about natural history. Very popular with parents with children. Expect queues during holidays. Outside, next to the brasserie, there’s a shallow pool of water where people dip their feet during summer. During summer the billetterie may move upstairs to near the galleries because it’s air-conditioned. When I visited there was I intense summer heat from climate change, and the building is like a greenhouse trapping heat.
Beautiful building, a wide variety of exhibits. We only had 2 hours and did not see everything. Students were 5 euro, adults 9 euro in 2022 so a great price. At the top there is a small food area and look out point to see the rivers. Mass transit made it easy to reach on metro and tram.
