Both a museum and a palace, the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Lyon provides companies, in return for patronage or through simple privatization, with space for its receptions, as well as an auditorium for conferences.
Former cloister of the abbey, the museum garden is a haven of peace in the heart of Lyon. Original sculptures by Rodin, Bourdelle or Duret echo the museum's collections. This exceptional setting is ideal for summer receptions. The garden can accommodate up to 500 people.
