A beautiful and interesting small museum, on the stairway to Bastille. It's free and above the temporary exhibition, the are two more interesting exhibitions to visit, the gardens and the chapel. I loved the "people of the alpes" exhibition.

The museum has temporary exhibitions and if it is worth or to to climb the hill to see the museum may change. The mansion has a nice chapel that can be visited.

This was easily my favorite museum I've seen so far in Grenoble, with a number of very interesting exhibits, all nicely laid out and explained with an interesting array of accompanying materials. The big drawback is that all of the temporary exhibits are only in French, though I was able to understand the basic gist of things using my high... More

The museum is very nice, with special dedication towards the history of the mountain people which is elaborate and excellent. The ski exhibit is nice but not too elaborate, which is due to space I guess. The chapel is beautiful if you carefully look at the carvings on the wall and ceiling. The permanent exhibits have English translation which was... More

The Musée dauphinois (Dauphinois museum) is a county museum, located in Grenoble (France). It is an ethnographic, archaeological and historical museum, covering the territory of the former province of Dauphiné. In a 17th-century monastery, visitors can visit the chapel of Sainte-Marie-d'en-Haut with a rich baroque decoration. The permanent exhibits have English translations, which is good for those who do not... More

Loved this museum. Fantastic view of Grenoble and beautiful gardens, even though the weather was dull and grey. It would be even more lovely in summer. The permanent exhibition about the lives of the mountain people was excellent. The displays were innovative and we especially enjoyed the models of houses and the rooms set up as they would have been.... More

The museum is well laid out, with temporary exhibitions along with the church, ski exhibit and gorgeous gardens. However I'd say that this museum would be best enjoyed for those who take an actual interest in the exhibits that are here - as it is not the most captivating museum to visit as a tourist in Grenoble. Having said this,... More

Interesting site to visit, free access. The history of the site was in both French and English, and one of the three temporary exhibits was also partly in English. It is a bit of a haul to walk up there, so be aware that they are closed on Tuesdays! I made that mistake so had to go back the following... More
