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.

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.

I did not know that there was a museum like this in Grenbole. It is very well organized and it is near the center of the city. The entrance is free & even the audio-guides are free.

Wow! This is a must see for anyone visiting Grenoble. Excavations started here in the 70's and last about 20 years. They uncovered the original worship areas for monks who lived there, along with a crypt and mausoleum. Skeleton bones and all are in display. Interesting to see how old sections were built over and around through the years. Definitely... More

When we checked into our hotel and asked about tourist information, the receptionist specifically recommended a visit to this museum. Having visited scores of archeological museums all around the world, we were a bit skeptical but it was free, so we decided to check it out. It is located in a old church and there is a free audio guide... More
