Lumière Museum, Lyon Photos

The Antoine Lumière family "castle" (1899) (25 rue du Premier-Film) now houses the Lumière Museum. The museum features two aspects of French history. The Lumière brothers were inventors of photographic films and then founded studios to make France's earliest motion pictures, even sending their cinematographers around the world to make films. The family castle sat on the grounds of their early film studio. The other museum aspect features the Art Nouveau style in which the house was designed by architects Paul Boucher & Charles-Joseph Alex.
