It is wonderful to stand on the ground floor level and look back in time. Below your feet can be seen the different levels of history. Not only that it is possible to walk all around. Great effort has been made so that you can view things through the walkways and steps. Very atmospheric. Don't forget to take the free... More

the archaeological enclosure and the artifacts only helps you understand the living history that is Grenoble. Of course this is important in any trip - since many places like Grenoble are a layer cake of artifacts and cultures to the present day. The museum has an underground Gingrich are the remains of Gallo-Roman and early Medieval Grenoble. It is well... More

Please note that Pepe500 has confused his recollections of Grenoble museums (it's easily done!) His review below is of Grenoble's Natural History Museum, which is located in the Park Mistral. The Archaeological Museum is located on the other side of the river, in the St Laurent church. It is a superb museum and well worth a visit on its own... More

I wish to recommend one of the best historic and cultural place from Grenoble, in the French Alps. You could find a very special ambience... Morever, the entrance is free. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Mus%C3%A9e-arch%C3%A9ologique-de-Grenoble/364869429937?ref=ts&fref=ts

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!
