Museum is interesting with some very nice displays, but the organization is somewhat confusing- not a chronological and systematic approach instead leaving you wanting to research more at home. French and English for almost all simplifies the reading! Staff are friendly and the museum is...More

Instead of the more traditional museums of art and archeology, during my short visit to Grenoble I definitely wanted to see this special museum. The exhibition is very thorough and detailed in presenting the individual people from this era of history, thus probably aimed more...More

This is a moving museum with a well balanced mix of multimedia (for both adults and kids) and primary resources. Lots of original footage, and fascinating displays, well described in English and French. Very balanced presentations of collaboration, resistance, treachery.

Interesting to read about the resistance and Grenable's role in WW2. Nice that the exhibits are translated into English, although the font was too small for me to read comfortably. Free entry

THe museum traces the history of Grenoble from 1933 looking at life before, during and after the occupation of the town by the Nazis. Grenoble was also occupied by the Italians before the Germans moved in in 1942. Well worth a visit.
