The Confluence Museum is a museum of science and society. Located at the confluence of the Rhone and Saone, the museum opened its doors on December 19, 2014. He is the heir of the Museum of Lyon, closed to the public since July 2007. It thus includes all the collections and is supplemented by acquisitions.

His collection, high of 2.2 million objects is "made of endless discoveries from scholars or amateur enthusiasts, enriched rational supplements or fads of an era." The director of the Noah's Ark of humanity sees this "accumulation measuring a utopia" at once a "child attic, gift box, an imaginary journey, a curio shop window, a pool of dreams, a source of knowledge and a testimony to the progress of science. "

Impossible to condense into a slogan about a unique museum in Europe. At the crossroads of the naturalist museum, Great Gallery of Evolution, the Conservatory of Arts and Trades, Mucem and Quai Branly, the eclecticism of its funds borders on absurd Egyptian mummies, Berliet engines, extinct species , insects, fossils, asteroids, Senufo sculptures, minerals, samurai armor, stuffed hummingbirds, caps Amazon ... An inventory as Prévert would not have denied. A remarkable treasure in its scale, diversity and rarity of specimens. "He questions the Earth from the origins and humanity in its history and geography."
