In Lyon, France you will find an hyper realistic museum of miniature film sets and it is called Musée Miniature et Cinéma created by award-winning miniaturist artist Dan Ohlmann. The collections extend over five stories, totalling almost 2,000 m² of exhibition space.
Located in “Vieux-Lyon”, the museum is housed in the “Maison des Avocats” a famed 16th century building that is now a UNESCO world heritage site.
Unique in France, the main collection presents over 100 hyperreal miniature scenes on two stories. More than mere technical achievements, these creations are mirages of their own kind. Their outstanding realism revives one’s memories and exhales a distinct sense of nostalgia. The subtle lighting arrangement, the painstaking replication of old textures, the use of the same original materials, all contribute to the creation of a moving poetry that resonates with each new miniature panorama.

All the hyperreal miniature scenes of master miniaturist and Museum curator Dan Ohlmann are on display. They are the result of over 20 years of passionate creation in his workshop. Formerly a cabinetmaker and inner architect, he has always worked with one goal in mind: to take the viewer to various ambiances of our daily life. [source]
