History Museum Museum
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.

  • Important site of necropolis, Saint Laurent is a must for the discovery and study of funeral rites and burial modes, early Christian times to the 18th century. More than 1,500 burials have indeed been updated. Among the oldest are 8 mausoleums dated the 4th and 5th centuries. One of them, unique in France, has kept its interior murals representing false marbles. The jewel of the site is undoubtedly the crypt Saint-Oyand, remnant of a funerary church built at the beginning of the 6 th century in form of a Greek cross and including each branch had three apses, symbol of the Holy Trinity. Open every day, from 10 h to 18 h except Tuesday. Place St. Lawrence 38000 Grenoble 04 76 44 78 68 musee-archeologique@isere.fr
