The building itself is a revelation, with extraordinary amounts of open space, pristine galleries, lovely views out the windows. The collection(s) are quite extensive, and you have a choice of place/period. We spent much of an afternoon in the modern galleries, which hold works from artists you know (including Chagall and Klee) and those you probably don't. It is an... More

I highly recommend visiting the Musee de Grenoble. The museum is big enough with a human size. You can observe a wide range of movements. It is really pleasant to walk around. For the temporary rooms, I have been astonished by master pieces (Cogné, Die Brücke, ...)

Very accessible museum, with a wide selection of paintings and sculptures. From large landscapes and portraits, classical and modern, Picasso and Matisse there is something to suit all tastes. The galleries are light and airy and the art is very accessible, with comfortable sofas should you want to take a break. There is a restaurant on site and a nice... More

This purpose built complex is vast with huge public spaces and excellent presentation of art works. The range of works on display ranges from 13th century icons to modern and conceptual pieces. Good circulation space and ample seating available

The building is superb with galleries more than spacious enough for very large pieces. The collection is good before the Revolution and notably good post 1910. There only a few Impressionist pieces on display for our visit, including a very interesting Sisley. One of the surprises was a cluster of work by Georgette Agutte, a Fauvist we had not previously...

Fabulous museum in Grenoble. It an oasis in the city center. I love to come here on Sundays just to wander around and marvel at the fabulous paintings. They have wonderful exhibits all year long and the first Sunday of the month is free. Be sure to become a friend of the museum to support the arts.

Nice museum with some famous works of art, from the last medieval period to the modern art. But, big disappointment again: no info in any other language than french. So, no foreign visitor should go there!
