We have climbed up the hill to this old monastery converted to the museum. We admire the road, the museum itself, the exhibitions and then descend another way back to Italian quarter.

There's something so calming about this place. I love to walk up here and walk around the inside. It's one of the places that haven't been ruined by the current administration.

The museum has a free entrance. It's a good place to pop into after a walk in Bastille. One of current expositions shows the life of alpine people. It's very informative and it helps to understand better the culture of the Rhone-Alpes region.

Three well thought out exhibitions. Family friendly but also enough cultural insight. English translations would have helped but then it is a local museum.

This museum is located in an attractive old convent which offers views across the river to Grenoble and the surrounding hills. It consists of three main elements - the building, the permanent exhibitions and the changing exhibitions. The main interest lies in the building -...More
