The Musée des Confluences in Lyon

The Musée des Confluences is a museum of natural history, societies and civilisations in Lyon. It boasts ultra-modern architecture and a fun, contemporary museography.

A permanent tour

The permanent exhibition at the Musée des Confluences covers 3,000m2, divided into four areas:

Origins: the stories of the world. This exhibition on the second floor of the museum retraces the first steps of mankind and the adaptation of species throughout history. The most emblematic piece is undoubtedly the Choulans mammoth, a mammoth skeleton discovered in 1859.

Species: the web of life. When the symbolic representations of different civilisations meet science.

Societies: the human theatre. Organising, exchanging, creating... Discover how societies are formed.

Eternities: visions of the afterlife. This exhibition looks at the perception of death in ancient and contemporary societies.
