I have visited the museum on many occasions, and sadly have never found it inspirational or enjoyable. French museums often seem geared at the initiated and pretentious, and Grenoble's is no different. This last occasion was an evening guided tour for a company Christmas dinner (in the restaurant of the same complex), but again,the guide was pretentious and we were... More

These photographs show just some of the places we visited during our stay. The Cathedral Notre Dame, Funicular and Bastille are reported in separate posts. We camped outside the city and caught trams into the heart of Grenoble. Let the photos inspire you to visit this vibrant and interesting city.

Thank heavens I returned to this restaurant, which I hadn't visited for 2 years. The chef and his/her standards has obviously changed, improved enormously. Very extensive menu choice, food freshly prepared to order. The brochette de canard I ordered was fabulous, our group tasted the salade minceur, the burgers, the veggie lasagna and everyone RAVED. Prices are quite fair. Service... More

Beautiful modern construction facility that includes a very well equipped theatre for presentations of mid large size. You should at least check it out.

This museum got three stars from the Michelin guide and i give it four stars. This is one of the most prestigious museums in France with art from 13C - 19C. Exceptional quailty of the artworks makes a visit manditory.

The museum is in a huge, gorgeous building that opened in 1994. The visit guides you chronologically through the exhibits from the pre-Rennaissance to the present. The galleries are large - as are many of the paintings. In fact, I have never seen so many enormous canvases in any other museum. But they are not just large, many are fabulous... More

We travelled from Annecy to Grenoble especially to visit this Museum since it is considered the oldest regional Museum of contemporary art in which we are interested in. However, beside the collection of paintings of 20th and 21st century has a remarkable collection of prominent painters of the 19th century. In fact it houses paintings from the 13th century and...

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
