We go there about twice a year, and we are often surprised by the quality and diversity of the temporary exhibitions. I am not a big fan of classic paintings and sculptures, so the permanent collection is not attractive to me but the kids enjoy it anyway. If you go there on a first sunday of each month, visit is...

Great museum with a large and interesting collection. Nice if you are interested in Fantin-Latour who was born in Grenoble of course. Lovely terrace and restaurant. Nice personnel.

Most of the public museum of Grenoble are free, except for the special exhibitions. So this museum is a nice place to spend some time, not that excellent collection but interesting. Very special architecture...

This museum is much smaller than many well known and respected museums throughout Europe, but it hosts an impressive collection. It has the standard pieces from the middle ages to the 18th century, but it's on the late 19th and 20th century that it really shines, as well on some contemporary pieces. It may come as a surprise in a... More

A nice surprise for a relatively small town. Large spacious building and exhibit rooms with a good collection of modern and contemporary art, as well as some rooms with 16th-18th century mostly European art. We spent about 4 hours in the museum, with a break in the middle for lunch. You can leave and return the same day with your... More

This is the second largest museum in France after the Louvre. It was impossible to take it all in in one day and I spent three afternoons there. The collection of religious paintings is spectacular and the restaurant serves excellent snacks and meals. Underground parking makes it easy and this should not be missed. Grenoble is a fantastic place to... More
