Mini World Lyon

Hi!
I'm currently enjoying a few vacation days at home with family visiting us in Lyon. Yesterday, we all went out to visit a miniatures museum which is called Mini World Lyon, located in Vaulx-en-Velin in the suburbs of Lyon.
The permanent exhibition contains several worlds full of thousands of miniatures in the following themes: the City, the Mountain, the Countryside and the City of Lyon itself.
There was also a temporary exhibition, Star Wars Lego.

Since the cameras are welcome in this park, my sister, my daughter and I took all the necessary to take pictures, and we spent at least two hours shooting as much as possible - the only restriction was that there were at lot of people, particularly children, because of the autumn holidays. A wonderful exhibition nevertheless: hundreds of little scenes, vehicles and characters disseminated in the various landscapes, and a light cycle representing day and night in 20 mn... I can't wait to go there again :)


















If you want to know more about this place, here is the link to their official website, it's really worth a look... and a visit, at least !

    1. C'était une première pour moi, et j'ai été agréablement surpris. De plus ce ne sont pas des dioramas statiques mais plutôt animés, entre les trains, les voitures et camions, un pont roulant dans une usine, et les engins de la fête foraine! Ca vaut vraiment le déplacement.

    1. Merci Maudlin. Il y a beaucoup de petites scènes comme ça partout, parmi des milliers, voire des dizaines de milliers de figurines.
