Dr Mérieux Museum of Biological Sciences

The Dr Mérieux Museum of Biological Sciences is dedicated to biology and the fight against infectious diseases. It tells the story of how women and men have learned about microbes and how to fight against the diseases that these microorganisms can cause, through diagnosis, vaccination and therapies.

This museum tells the story of the Mérieux family. The history of these pioneering scientists working in the field of global public health began in Lyon in 1897 and continued in Marcy l’Etoile in 1917, a small village in the west of Lyon that has now become a major centre in the fight against infectious diseases.

Rooted in today’s world and looking to the future, the museum presents the major global health issues. It aims to raise awareness among all publics, especially young people, so that they can become actors in their own health by better understanding microbes and thus better fight against infectious diseases.
