A must see for any stop over in Grenoble, the Musée de Grenoble was actually one of the first modern art museums in France. André Farcy was an early collector of contemporary art in France, and many of the works in the 20th-century collection were personal gifts from friends/artists. The modern collection is large and vast in scope with a number of striking works by Matisse, Picasso, Delaunay, and some large-scale works by the lesser known Cubist, Gleizes. The Ancient collection is also impressive.

The Museum layout is confusing, but the lighting is gorgeous, and glimpses of the surrounding Alps through the numerous windows make for a special experience.

Grenoble is a beautiful town on his own, but I was really surprised by the Museum bold design and breadth of collections. There are masterpieces from great painters, but also a great collection of sculptures. The museum deserves half a day of your time, you won't regret. Easily reachable by tram, enjoy!!

One wouldn't expect a relatively small ton to have such an extensive collection, ranging from the Italian Renaissance to the Ultra Contemporary. But the Musée de Grenoble is precisely that. Tons of important works from all sorts of periods.

last days of a superb exhibit on egypt as cahmpollion lived here! teh louvre lent some pieces and the theme ' serving the gods ' is well done, very well explained and the settings wit huge photos of temples re creates the ambiance as people to day are reluctant to visit egypt! the place si packed and school kids galore! lunch time may be the best bet not to queue for an hour.....
I liked the part devoted to the priestesses, dancers, singers of the temples as they used ' claquettes ' like spanish dancers wit castagnettes! children love the little replica of a tomb!! run because it is soon the end of the show!
one remark: seniors don't get a concession whereas they are numerous but ' political refugees 'do .......mr Curator, think about it ......

The museum of Grenoble is one of the best French museums for paintings outside of Paris. Good collection, modern, good light, a lot of space, a "feel good" place. I find the first half of XX century collection the most interesting.

This museum surprised us with its beautiful exhibitions. In particular, the Picasso war exhibition was fantastic. In the museum they have paintings done by famous painters as well as gorgeous works of art by unknown ones (at least to me). Highly recommend!

The museum building is new and large. It's very well laid out in chronological order. The galleries are large so you can get far enough away to appreciate the very large paintings. We knew most of the artists. Most of the works were high quality. We spent about three pleasant hours taking it all in. This is much better than the beaux arts museum in Lyon.

The first thing to notice is the architecture of the building itself -- modern, clean lines, an invitation to the art. But once inside the architecture complements the art, unlike some museums where the building is the experience instead of the art itself.
Spend a couple of hours and travel through the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries. And then spend another good amount of time wandering the 20th century galleries, full of modern art by familiar names like Warhol and those you might never have heard of before but will be glad to know about.
Definitely a must see in Grenoble.
