We went there on a whim, using a "first sunday free pass" and we were nicely surprised by the quality of the collections. We discovered a nice museum (the building in itself is quite a view) with well documented collections, whether permanent or temporary. And we learned that this museum is free, every day!

I enjoyed the museum, although I was a bit disappointed that only half of the exhibitions had English descriptions and text next to the French ones. I figure that´s a general problem in France. However, the views and gardens don´t need explanations, and the museum is definitely worth a visit. I especially liked the part on the history of skiing.

It is a bit walking up the hill, but only if it is hot this might be a problem for elserly people. There are beautifull terraces where you can enjoy the view and flowers. The exhibition was on Confidences d outre tombe. An excellent work of those who organised it. I liked it a lot.

This is full of local colour. They were having specific displays on 1. the history of photography and 2. Death! I really could live without the one on Death! However if you are into skulls and zombies I imagine it would be fasscinating. They had a screen which showed your skeleton when you stood in front of it which moved... More

Free entry to this museum which was once a convent. There is a road up for those who cannot manage all the steps. There are several steps inside and outside the museum, no lift. Info is given in both French and English. At present it has an excellent exhibition commemorating the First World War. It has two more floors with... More

Go with someone who understands french. Extremely interesting history of gen d'alps. There are other exhibitions there as well but the history is done very well.

This is a "free" access museum to learn a bit about the groble region story located in an ancient abbey and hosting regularly temporary exhibitions (normally free access as well) of high value of interest. It's our preferred place for a relaxing afternoon with visiting friends.

We were taken by local residents to this small museum and I can't recommend it highly enough. Entry is free and there are plenty of English translations to aid the visitor. Exhibits ranged from the history of skiing to alpine villages through the ages and life in the 14-18 War. There is also a beautiful chapel with a painted ceiling.... More

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.
