Printing Museum Lyon, summertime or anytime


With justifiable pride, the Musée de l'Imprimerie de Lyon announced, in its January newsletter this year:


"Worth a journey", as the Guide Michelin likes to say... certainly for anyone with an interest in the history of the book, early printing, the printing process generally, book-binding or collecting, incunabula... also transitions-in-media, from manuscript to print to the digital era... also Lyon, and its excellent cuisine, and chocolate, and its beautiful views from La Croix Rousse or Fourvière down over the Saône and the Rhône, and on clear days even across La Guillotière and up to the soaring Alps...

To summer visitors, this year, the Musée offers, to children and to adults: their outstanding permanent exhibits on the history of printing and of the book -- and it's a wonderful and beautiful old building in the city center, too, a cool refuge from summer heat -- and,


So, just a suggestion... a recommendation... If you are in the Hexagone or will be there, this summer, leave the bouts with the Da Vinci Code hordes, racing from pyramid to pyramid at the Louvre, and those long autoroute stretches, and fighting the heures de pression along the Côte d'Azur: instead, see Lyon -- visitez the excellent and interesting Musée de l'Imprimerie -- worth a journey.
