This is essentially a church with the floor removed to reveal the remains of earlier buildings dating back to the earliest centuries of Christianity. It is free to visit, there is a free audio guide and the lady on the desk was really nice and helpful - when I said I could only make a very brief visit she suggested... More

we visited the archeological museum in Grenoble with our 2 kids age 3 and 6, and we were all really impressed. from the entrance when you are 15m into the air and overlooking the whole museum to the old graves. some archeological linked activities are available if booked in advance. great place to understand the origins of Grenoble itself.

We were enthralled by the atmosphere in the main exhibit. It provides a wonderful insight into the development of the region and the people that inhabited it. Free entry and audio guides in all languages (did not take one, row from wife). Greeting was wonderful and the chap was a fan of the mountains in Scotland, which are much...smaller.

This museum was a good visit. It was free with a free audio guide. It was interesting. About 1 hour visit. But I probably would not have gone if it was not free.

This is an amazing museum that highlights the ancient church, while using modern technology to explain the history. It is simply necessary to give your zip code when you enter, but then the visit is free. I would say that the museum takes between 45 minutes and 1:30.

Very interesting museum if you enjoy history. Focused from a religious perspective due to being a church but it's very well laid out and interactive. And you can't argue with the price as it's free 😄

If you like old churches, this is a must. To begin with, it's free. Then, the audio guide is also free and available in a range of languages. The audio guide is in sync with projections to show you the history of the beautiful old church. Amazing to see so much history in one place, and the changes in the... More

Fascinating museums,where you are constantly on stairs, discovering the various layers of this church and its graveyard which kept evolving over time. The overall footage of the museum is quite small, but it offers so much. First time I see actual corpses buried in a churchyard. Quite far away from parking lots ,A must see for a family of good...

I stumbled on this museum by accident one day as I came down from the Bastille towards St Laurent. The museum is housed in a church that sits on a site that has been in constant use since the fourth century. There are animated videos showing the evolution of the site over time, as well as exhibitions of many artefacts... More
