It consists of three main elements - the building, the permanent exhibitions and the changing exhibitions. The main interest lies in the building - a wonderful baroque chapel, cloister and garden. The permanent exhibition on the people of the... More

This was the first museum I visited upon my arrival in Grenoble. I personally did not find the "Tsiganes" exhibit interesting, however, I did find both the "Gens de L'Alpe" and "Grenoble 1925" exhibits very interesting. There is one concept art piece showing one artist's rendition of what Paris could look like modernized. It is very interesting, keep your eye... More

The walk up to the museum, the monastery buildings, the gardens and their collective history is all worth a visit but the exhibitions themselves make up a weird collection. Of all the museums and attractions we visited in Grenoble this is the least one I would recommend.

A small and well organized museum. It's on-going to have an exhibition of skull-related. There are a few other themes exhibition. Could be recommended to family with children.

The top floor with mock ups of life in the Alps was excellent. The temporary exhibition on death was challenging and thoughtful.

This is indeed a nice museum with a quite diverse exhibition. The museum is situated in an old monestary and parts of this is still visible. Apart from the well arranged exhibition there is also a very nice little garden from which you can get a good relaxing view of Grenoble.

We went there on a whim, using a "first sunday free pass" and we were nicely surprised by the quality of the collections. We discovered a nice museum (the building in itself is quite a view) with well documented collections, whether permanent or temporary. And we learned that this museum is free, every day!

I enjoyed the museum, although I was a bit disappointed that only half of the exhibitions had English descriptions and text next to the French ones. I figure that´s a general problem in France. However, the views and gardens don´t need explanations, and the museum is definitely worth a visit. I especially liked the part on the history of skiing.
