I recommend this museum to all the people who are in Grenoble and that's because it gives you and opportunity to see how art in Western Europe has changed during last 4 centuries. Moreover, it's free attraction for people under 26 years old!

Brill museum that was 10E with audio guide. Good value. Well set out and very spacious place. The building is cool (both types) and relaxing too. Shop is small and pretty average.

This is well worth the visit. Awesome architecture of building itself housing an excellent contemporary art collection. Also has historic art though that's not really my thing as much. Highly recommended.

If you have just a short time and don't want to find time difficulty to hardly plan how to visit one whole museum within limited hours, this is the place where you can spend only 3 hours to 6 hours and complete all charming pieces in this museum with reasonable ticket price (EURO 8 - 10). However, I personally didn't... More

I was looking forward to my visit to the Musee de Grenoble, and I wasn't proven wrong. Highly interesting exhibits from very known artists gracefully displayed. The only downside is the fact that the explanatory signs were in French only....

The museum contains an interesting collection of paintings from all periods. Mostly French painters, but not only. There are paintings, interesting sculptures and art installations. I like the idea with the seats in some rooms. Descriptions are in French, but the audio guide is available in English. In audio guide there is about 30 works described, descriptions are interesting and... More

I like this museum. An interesting mixture of local art along with some masters and a good collection from a very interesting impressionist I had not seen much of before. Don't miss the tower and Roman wall section outside the museum also.

I've been to this museum since I was a kid and I keep going back. You can discover great modern art masterpieces from artists such as Matisse, Andy Warhol, Sol Le Witt, Ellsworth Kelly, or Pierre Soulages. This is a very unique place in Grenoble if you like Art you should definitely visit it.

Enjoyed the special Georgia O'Keefe exhibit, and some of the modern galleries. The antiquities were somewhat limited, almost not worth having. The French artists were well represented. Lovely gift shop!
