Archaeological Museum, Grenoble

4.8
#2 of 40 in Museums in Isere
Centuries-old civilizations have left their mark at Archaeological Museum, which sits on the site of Saint-Laurent church. The building attracted the attention of archeologists after a 6th-century crypt was found there in the 19th century. However, the site was used for rites and rituals even before Christianity, making it one of France's most notable archeological finds. You'll see the remnants of pagan ceremonies on site, as well as later Christian artifacts.

    I go to this museum several times. It's absolutely to see! A former church with the ground opened on an archaeological site. I've never taken the audio-guides (even if free), but there is enough information available on touch screens to enjoy the visit. Children 5-7 years like, as well as grandparents!

    A place of culture very rewarding. The discovery of a religious site with all strata of the various occupations of the place.

    It was a great discovery for this museum. We have discovered the archaeological excavations which are impressive, the Church is well preserved.
