Museum of l'Imprimerie de Lyon

This private mansion was built at the end of the 15th century and bought by the town of Lyon early in the 17th century to store council archives and as a venue for council meetings. Like most of the mansions in this neighborhood which were built at the end of the Middle Ages, the floors are connected by a series of loggias that open onto a central courtyard. The building has been perfectly restored and now houses the Musée de l'Imprimerie. Visitors can walk into the courtyard without charge to admire the remarkable mullioned windows in the loggias and the stele commemorating the first town meeting that took place in this mansion in 1604. Numerous exhibitions on graphic art, prints, calligraphy and photographs are organized throughout the year. Various enjoyable activities, seminars and workshops are organized for children as well as adults.
