Musée des Confluences Set dramatically on the tip of the Presqu’île, where the Rhône and Saone rivers converge, the dazzling Musée des Confluences seems to have alighted from outer space. A stunning glass-and-steel edifice that’s both transparent and reflective, the museum is the flagship space in a vast project to revitalize the riverfront. Here, visitors learn the story of mankind, from the Big Bang to contemporary society. The fascinating permanent collection covers scientific, anthropologic, and historic perspectives, traveling through time and across continents to help visitors better understand humanity.
