The museum entrance is located at 17 Rue Kléberg above the Grand Theatre, near the esplanade where the view over the ruins and the rest of Lyon is outstanding. The museum is open from Wednesday to Sunday, from 9.30am to 12pm and 2pm to 6pm. There is an entrance fee. The museum is the work of the architect B. Zehrfuss and was inaugurated in 1975, a wonderful example of contemporary architecture. Leaning against the Fourvière Hill, where it is partly buried, the museum overlooks the archaeological park.
