Maison des Canuts

A visit to the Maison des Canuts takes you to the heart of 5 centuries of Lyonnais silk production, from the silkworm to today's textile industry.
A place for heritage interpretation, the guided tour opens the door to the workshop to help you understand Jacquard's invention, illustrated by a weaving demonstration on a 19th-century hand loom. Discover the history of the Canuts, their revolts, their social contributions and the way they left their mark on the city of Lyon. On certain days, you can continue with a guided tour of the Croix-Rousse traboules.
