We've been visiting this extraordinary museum for years, every time we come through Grenoble. Each year there's more and more to see. Something for every member of the family. Adults will appreciate the clear historical and archaeological explanations, while the children will love the skeletons. Highly recommended!

Really worth the visit: layers of medieval churches on top of Roman remains. Fascinating and Free! Also, not overwhelming: a short hour visit and you get a lot!

The museum stands on the banks of River Isere and is definitely worth a visit. You can complete two trips at the same time, The museum and Fort Bastille. It is located on the historic site of Saint Laurent. The amazing museum harbors the crypt and is very haunting. I would recommend taking the self-guided tour which will explain you... More

This museum is located at the back of the street which looks like more like a court to me. Up a very short, steep paved hill and then a few steps around the corner to the left. I asked a local person and they gladly pointed it out to me. This museum is everything that the reviews say!! It's extraordinary!... More

This had more than I expected. You can get an audio headset and follow the route at your own pace. There is a good story both in terms of the site history but also the excavation and museum. Lots of graves and bones. Definitely a bit of a different experience. Recommended!

This museum is highly recommended as it is a unique experience and nothing prepares you for the size and scope of it. The resting place of 1500 known corpses, the displays are symbolic of the structure and variety of the burials. The audio guides are informative without being too lengthy. We we sorry there was no obvious facility to donate... More

A very nice museum which can be visited for free, even the audioguides are free of charge. A visit takes approx 1-1.5h and is more than worthed if you're nearby.

I have never seen a museum like this.. Just go there check it out before you climb up to the Bastille… It was worth it!

Loved this place, a great way to spend an hour. The staff were very friendly and gave us English language audio guides which were very informative. The exposed ruins underneath the flooring were great and you can even see some slightly somber skeletons.
