Musée Gallo-Romain (Museum of Gallo-Roman Civilization)

One thing I was unaware of upon coming to Lyon was the significance Museums are to the Lyonnaise culture. I have never been interested much in museums, but after visiting my first one in Lyon I was hooked. They’re filled with culture, history, and memories. Thus, I am in this elective course dedicated entirely to the “musées” of Lyon. For my first post I want to share with you some images of the museum of Gallo-Roman Civilization. This is a museum located in the mountain of the Ancient Roman Amphitheater here in Lyon, it looks like this:

If you ever get the chance to visit Lyon I highly highly recommend checking out this museum, it’s full of historic artifacts, and highlights the history of Lyon during the Roman times.
