Located in the heart of Old Lyon, Hotel de Gadagne, built during the Renaissance by the Pierrevive brothers, has housed the collections of the Lyon History Museum since 1921. Conserving nearly 80,000 pieces, the museum gives an overview of the different faces of the capital of Gaul, which is as much the city of silk as it is of workers' revolts, of the chemical and pharmaceutical industries as well as of cinema.
