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.

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
