- Scrap metal dealer Henri Malatre opened Musée de l'Automobile Henri Malartre in 1960 in a 15th-century castle. He had actually started his car collection in 1931 and took it up again after being deported during the war. The museum was bought by Lyon city council in 1972. The exhibits include at least 150 cars, some of which are unique, as well as motorbikes, bicycles and various forms of public transport(trams, funiculars). The collection goes back to the first steam cars in 1890, Panhards in 1898 and through to modern sports cars (MacLaren, Maserati).
