The Musée des Confluences, which brings together science to understand the history of humanity and nature, is unique in Europe and is one of the most visited museums in France. It is an accessible, innovative and inspiring cultural place for your professional meetings.

Grand auditorium: The ideal space for your plenary session in Lyon

A venue for conferences, general assemblies or plenary meetings, discover the Grand Auditorium. It has a large capacity and a modular stage space. We also offer comprehensive technical support for optimal comfort.

Petit Auditorium: A cocoon for your meetings

We fell in love with the Petit auditorium, which offers you a warm and original setting thanks to its amphitheatre shape.

Galerie Emile Guimet: At the heart of the museum, versatile and customizable

Your guests meet in the Gallery for a meeting or a workshop, for a cocktail or dinner, after a stroll through the exhibitions or a plenary session in the auditoriums.

Crystal: Dazzle your guests!

The Cristal is the scene of your major events at the museum. In this majestic space, in the heart of a unique architecture, your events are unforgettable.

Terraces: On sunny days, in the air or by the water

We offer two terraces for your outdoor events. The first is intimate and on the roof, it is the ideal space for your evenings in the open air with a panorama of Lyon and the confluence. The second, at the gates of the Cristal and along the Rhône, will amaze you. Don't wait any longer to spend your summer evenings at the museum!
