Printing press museum

Recommended
The role of the bank in the commercial and industrial rise of Lyon is shown in the first rooms. But what attracts above all your attention is the section devoted to the history of the printing press, from wood engravings to photo composition. Some old volumes (including an impressive «incunable» or early printed book) teach us about the evolution of the techniques and the engraving procedures and honour the great Lyon humanist booksellers, illustrators and engravers.
