Great excavation and most impressive design engineering to be able to handle visitors to walk through this entire museum.

I thought I was going into yet another historic church. Surprise - the interior had been excavated down to crypts and mausoleum that were from 400AD! Well explained history and, I thought, fascinating.

The museum is the exhibition of the excavation of an old church. It is free and it is nicely displayed. If you have time, take a look.

I found this museum by accident while we were walking in the park of the mistral, the cost to visit the museum is definitely an incentive to speak well, there are many artifacts stuffed animal species that lived in the surrounding mountains, a beautiful section devoted to insects, an area dedicated to the explanation of the rock formation, and finally...

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!
