Introduce the younger ones to modern art at the Museum of Contemporary Art. Since 1995, the Museum of Contemporary Art, MAC for regulars, illuminates this international city with its bold architecture. Redefined by the architect Renzo Piano, this cultural institution of the city of Lyon is not far from the Tête d'Or park and, therefore, from your Campanile Lyon Gare Part-Dieu hotel. 2,800m² of modernity and visual arts, spread over 3 modular levels await you within its walls - dating from the 1930s, when they were then home to the Palais de la Foire de Lyon.Take time to enjoy the immediate surroundings of the museum, its forecourt where several works are exhibited. Innocent eyes will certainly be amazed by the work of Erwin Wurm and his truck folded in two against a wall. Or perhaps it will be the sparkling sculpture "World Markets".In addition to regular exhibitions, the museum is open to all audiences, at all ages, as evidenced by the many youth workshops. On the program are guided tours and workshops in photography, modeling and decor construction. The museum also organizes family visits every Sunday. For about an hour, you will be able to share a convivial and creative moment with your family and observe the same works from the same angle.
