This museum was a little side diversion my last day in Grenoble. THough not large it was very interesting because many of the displays were from the Alpine area. Yes they have some other items but the geological examples were mostly Alpine!

The museum is a gorgeous building in itself, and the displays are very impressive. There is 3 floors with various exhibitions, but there is also a separate building to the side of the museum which occasionally holds temporary exhibitions which are also worth a visit. Asides from this, the museum is surrounded by beautiful gardens which are perfect for picnic-ing... More
