What people say

"Spent hours in this museum learning about the silk trade its workers and how the revolution happened in Lyon over wages and the treatment of women. It is a must visit for anyone who loves well-crafted anything."
"This is a museum and a workshop dedicated to exploring the history of silk making in Lyon. You can take a guided tour or catch a demonstration of an antique loom!"

Mentioned in these guides

The hard yards (a great deal of effort or hard work - Australian slang) have been done with this guide I have spent time curating the perfect list of my go-to and want-to for the next trip (I visited Lyon three times last year alone) best over 2-3 days but the guide has plenty more for an extra day or 2. It includes the following. - 18 Restaurants (high-end to local favourites) - 16 Bars and Cafes (frequented by locals) - 7 Musemes (worth the effort and time) - 4 Markets (antique but mostly food) - 5 Hotels (high-end to affordable) - 5 Speciality Stores not to miss Welcome to Lyon, a city that effortlessly blends rich gastronomic traditions with a vibrant modern spirit. Renowned as the gastronomic capital of France, Lyon captivates visitors with its diverse culinary scene, from high-end establishments to charming Bouchons offering traditional Lyonnaise delights. Beyond its culinary prowess, Lyon stands as a livable city, embracing fresh produce markets, impressive museums, and a welcoming atmosphere. Join me on a journey through Lyon's iconic streets, uncovering its hidden gems, diverse flavours, and the unique blend of historic charm and contemporary allure that makes it a standout destination in Europe. - I am moving:)
