What people are saying:

This is an open museum. It is also part of the Lyon wall painting. There is a special stop on the T4 line. Just get off the car and cross the road. In a large residential building, there are huge works of architect and city planner Tony Garnier hidden. Tony Garnier was a pioneer urban architect in the 20th century. He was born in the Red Cross district of Lyon in 1869. The museum’s front desk is located in a gift shop, and you can buy a map showing the route to visit the 25 painted walls. One of them is Garnier's "Cite Industrielle" planning plan, which marks the function of each area and shows his vision of the future industrialized city. Unfortunately, this ideal city has not been built. But his ideas have influenced the thinking of urban planners to this day.

    Such a wonderful place

    This is not an indoor museum - but murals on the walls on a dozen or so apartment buildings in one of Lyons neighbourhoods. You can easily come by tram nr.4. There is a reception where you can check i...

    Unique combination

    I spent around 1 hour walking around this neighborhood to check out all 20+ (I guess residential) buildings with such wall paintings, in a beautiful morning. I have never seen or heard before of such ...
