Archaeological Museum, Grenoble

4.8
#2 of 49 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. A visit to Archaeological Museum represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Grenoble day trip planning website to plot your vacation.

  • If I were to visit a site in Grenoble to family to friends, it would be this one. Rare site. Historical value without a doubt. What we took for shekels for a chapel, a church, or a cloister, is revealed be a cemetery of the first Christians in Europe dating back to the 6th century. There are very few sites of this kind. An audio guide very useful, very effective and free makes the visit. What is rare is expensive.

  • The visit of the Saint-Laurent Church and its crypt, years ago, was almost impossible. After the excavations carried out from 1978 and the undertaken extensive work, site, become the MAG, was reopened to the public in 2011. It is a success and the Department of Isère can be proud of this restoration of a set back to the fourth century and enriched for centuries. Friendly by a young woman knowing his subject with explanations given free audioguide. Well-organized circuit and remarkable design own to visit the interesting for everyone, big and small, old stones fans or not. It is, in my opinion, an essential step in Grenoble who has a lot of attractions known but more limited in this area.
