Art Museum Museum
The art of nature is complemented with the art of humans at the Musée de Grenoble, founded by Louis-Joseph Jay in 1798. Although, Jay had to fight to have his plans approved for the 18,270 sq m ( 196,657 sq ft) building, it was eventually completed and touts an uninterrupted tour from 12th to 21st century art. There are artifacts on multiple floors, but don’t forget to visit the museum’s impressive collection of 19th- and 20th-century African artifacts located downstairs.

  • I'm going to one-time exhibitions: impressionists, Sigmar Polke, Kandinsky... because they are always very well done. In addition there are workshops for children and they love it!

Also you will find a collection of contemporary painting. Among the well-known authors you can find works of Valooton, ksndisky, molet, Miró or Zurbarán, among others. Modern facilities very spacious and very well suited.
