I needed to fill a morning while the hubby conducted business. The collection was the eight size for a short visit. I particularly enjoyed the Impressionist works. The ancient collection was very small. The staff was perfunctory, and though I attempted to use French, my attempts were not greeted with even an understanding chuckle. The woman minding the gift store... More

I liked this museum because it wasn't overwhelming and I was able to view all of the works in just under 2 hours. They have a Warhol, some Picasso's, and a Matisse which make it worth a look, in my book. The guides were excellent as well.

This museum has been around for only 20 years. It has half paintings and half sketches. It biggest piece was a Rembrandt self portrait on loan from the louvre. It has a few major works from a few artist like Renoir, Kandinsky, Rembrandt. It show cases a lot of regional artists and contemporary works. This isn't the type of museum... More

We visited this museum, the only one we have been to in Grenoble where we paid, and the one we enjoyed the least. There was a very definite shortage of information on the paintings and English translations non existent, which meant we could not enjoy the exhibits. The curators were not tuned into to foreign visitors and there could be... More

I've tried to love this museum, but somehow it just doesn't inspire. It's a little pompous, the curators do not engage much with visitors, so (I hate to say it) but it's all a bit boring. Sorry Grenoble, I've tried several times over the years with the same result. The restaurant next door is OK, though!

There are regular expos here, the permanent exhibit is quiet good ! The building is beautiful, spacious, full of light and... More

I expected a small regional museum, and got a very large and very well exhibited series of exhibits - archeology, sculpture, painting - in a beautiful setting. Some great works here which I did not expect to find. Truly worth seeing.

One of my favourite art museums in the WORLD, and it's right down the street / Isere river. I stroll through this museum once a month. The temporary exhibits are always original and well explained, the permanent collection is vast, varied and beautifully exhibited. Lighting in this modern (though now 20 year old) building is perfection. Airy, spacious. Noone should... More

I visited this museum with a group of friends, none of us being particularly big art lovers, but we all thoroughly enjoyed this museum. The sheer size and layout of the building itself is beautiful, including some of the paintings which covered entire walls - quite incredible! The art spanned from classic to contemporary, which means you'll most likely find... More
