Know-how and know-this: Lyon’s horticultural epic, as told by its printers

 You’d be very surprised, and even a little dubious, to learn that Lyon’s world famous expertise in roses and botany is closely related to the silk trade, medicine and printing!

Yet here you’ll learn how some of Lyon’s enthusiastic and conscientious printers actually went as far as to create their own botanical garden in order to have real models to help them illustrate their books...

You’ll also be told how over 2 000 species of roses were created in Lyon, and many other things besides...

You’re sure to make some astonishing discoveries if you go to see this well-documented and highly instructive exhibition.

So don’t miss it!


The entry to the museum and its exhibition are included in the Lyon City Card pass
