We went here on a very hot day and were gratefu for the shade and cool. Apart from that there is an interesting audio visual interactive guided tour which takes you round the building and the excavations of the graveyard. Lots of skeletons!! I imagine all churches would be the same if the churchyard were to be dug up! The... More

This is a very interesting place to visit, even for those who are not that interested in "stones and bones". Take at least 30 minutes to explore the museum. I was not that happy with the audio guide (I did not know where to search e.g. No 4), but I enjoyed the story anyway. The lady on the entrance spoke... More

This museum interested me very much. I saw that it was an archeological dig surrounded by a modern building. I do not know if excavation is ongoing or not but still an interesting use of an hour! The entrance is free and they provide you with an audio guide. When you enter you get an overview of the site which... More

I was walking down from La Bastille and just happened to find this museum (perhaps because it is on the path down towards Port St-Laurent). Interesting and well done

A great few hours out. Amazing work preserving and presenting the old tombs. The church is also a beautiful building.

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
