So Many Museums in Lyon!

So Many Museums in Lyon!, Lyon, France (B)

In general I have never been a person who likes museums…bad school trips experience of the boring places with a lot of documents to read and history to learn but since i finished school and has not been forced any more to go to the museum I started to appreciate it. I did enjoy many museums in London, the top and well known ones like:British Museum, Natural History Museum, Science Museum and the Greenwich one was impressive. But my real love for the museums expanded in Lyon! Why? Firstly, it is because of the place and people living here. I can see how the city is taking care of their history and sharing with others and you start to appreciate it yourself! Then people…they live differently, they spend quality time outside homes and supermarkets. What I learn is that the one of the benefits of shops closed on Sundays, is that it makes people to fill the day with the better things to do…so the art galleries, museums and parks are full of families, couples, friends walking & admiring & learning & appreciating the art and history. There are many people but its never so crowded that you cannot enjoy the place. So this whole atmosphere of people and Lyon made me want to visit the Lyonnais Museums and I did visit many…Whenever I have a free time and whenever the weather is not that great, I will go to the museum …when the weather is better I will not stay at home either but come to the park for a change…so I have the List of Top Lyonnais Parks to visit already summarized and now I have created the List of the Top 20 Museums in Lyon… ......
