The Musée Miniature et Cinema (Museum of Miniature and Cinema) is really two museums in one. First, the museum contains the miniature scenes of artist Dan Ohlmann and the work of dozens of other miniature artists. It also holds hundreds of film set props, including the original costume from "Batman Forever" and a triceratops head from "Jurassic Park." 

Recent visitors called this museum unexpected and delightful, saying that they recommend it highly for both children and adults. Others say the beautiful, 16th-century building is an added bonus to the interesting, even entrancing exhibits. 

You'll find the museum in Vieux Lyon; accessible from metro line D via the Vieux-Lyon stop. It's open from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Admission to the Musée Miniature et Cinema costs 9 euros ($10.75) for adults and 6.50 euros (around $7.75) for kids, ages 4 to 15. Children 3 and younger can enter for free. If you purchased a Lyon City Card, your admission is free. For more information, visit the Musée Miniature et Cinema's website.
