We have been to this Museum 4 years ago because we wanted to visit an exposition called sepia colour dedicated to the first professional photographers of the area. Since we went there we visited the whole building and all the exhibits which covered findings of the area of Isere from prehistory till present. We found it extremely interesting.

This is an amazing experience into fascinating levels of history! This cathedral has been peeled back to reveal its progression through the ages with sensational effect, superb relics and displays, informative audioguides and helpful staff.

I had an hour to fill and happened upon this free museum. Take the tramway B in Grenoble to get here - it's the Notre Dame museum stop. The building is what makes this museum extra special. It's a prior Bishop's palace with excavations and a baptistry in the basement dating from early Christian times. I found the baptismal section... More

We very much enjoyed this museum, lots of varied exhibits BUT a lack of translated information on exhibits. English translations are understood by much of the world and would have given us so much more on our visit. Nevertheless this is is a great museum, the Roman section is so interesting. A free attraction that, again, deserves a visit to... More

The museum is just next to the Notre Dame Cathedral in Grenoble, Admission is usually free. The architecture is very cool and the space is quite big. The cathedral next door is quite beautiful as well. The museum exhibits seem to focus on regional artists and art. It's always really interesting. Afterwards grab a coffee or a drink at one... More

This museum was incredibly interesting, but I'm quite sure I didn't get the full impact as I don't read/speak French at all and all the displays are written in French only. I went in on a whim, so didn't think to ask if they had the English audio guide, which I now know after reading reviews here, they do offer.... More

Every visitor to Grenoble needs to check into this downtown museum, to see its regular exhibit (includes the archeological history of the crypt of adjoining Notre Dame) as well as the temporary exhibit of celebrated 20th century photographer Robert Doisneau. His family, fashion and landscape shots of the region are memorable. Exhibit has been extended into September

Live music, very good staff. Handled our party very nicely. The Salad was very fresh and the food looked good. It was cooked in the local manner.
