  • I had already come to the Alpine Museum and I was a joy to see all the old paintings as well as mountain objects exposed. My disappointment was great because many of the paintings that reflected Chamonix from before had been removed. However there were still a lot of object and the representations of ancient scenes. I find it unfortunate that an Alpine Museum in a city like Chamonix travelled thousands of tourists is not provided more and more representative of the heritage.

  • Very nice museum with good exposition about history of Chamonix valley, alpinism and Mont Blanc conquer.
  • Interesting museum of local history. Much better is the neighbourhood with the beautiful views all around, the establishments, the terraces... And of course with the mountainous background! It's nicely lit up so sunset is wonderful to have some wine outside and just enjoy the tranquility of this area!
  • Quite an interesting museum to learn the history of Chamonix and its alps. Came here with my ski instructor and we both found it quite nice. Objects, paintings, and sculptures. You can get a discount potentially with hotel / ski proofs. A nice option for a short break from the slopes in downtown Chamonix!
  • Really interesting museum
