Musée des Confluences

Discovering the Musée des Confluences

The Musée des Confluences is an amazing architectural achievement and leaves nobody indifferent.
This huge metal structure opens its arms to visitors and reveals its treasures as they move within it. Allow yourself to be guided as you move around its changing exterior and inside the museum to discover its inner spaces and their riches.
Full of curiosities and surprises, the museum reveals and shares knowledge of the great story of humankind. Its four permanent exhibitions (Origines, Espèces, Sociétés, Eternités – Origins, Species, Societies, Eternities) form bridges and open spaces for reflection, at the confluence of various forms of knowledge and disciplines.

Confluence district

Tour in the Confluence district
16:00-18:00, on foot

Discover the urban planning features of the confluent area as designed by the great architects, whose goal was to bring a welcome injection of nature into the city, with the Place Nautique and the Saône Park.

It is a fine example of contemporary urbanism where the environment is preserved.

This project has also seen the Port Rambaud docks being refocused on contemporary culture and the former railway station market being reused for housing, shops and offices.
