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.

I'm native from Grenoble.... if you come to our fantastic place, it's certainly to learn some more about our local culture, right?

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 - 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.
