Musée de Grenoble, Grenoble
(4.4/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • A great Museum. A temporary exhibition not to be missed under any circumstances. Allow a few hours for the visit, and that spoils nothing, great staff.

  • There is always something to see and contemplate over the different exposures. The architecture of this museum is attractive, from room to room you can discover beautiful collections of works, temporary exhibitions with a special light. A good cultural moment.

  • The Museum of Grenoble is worth for themselves already taken a trip. You want to be no. 3 on France. In addition, the special exhibition to Kandinsky, for which we arrived from the Black Forest, has exceeded our expectations. The Museum is located on the Isère and reached a few minutes walk from the Centre and the old town from CN.

  • Excellent artworks. Free entry every first sunday of the month, so it will be crowdy.
  • Beautiful collection of art . Wide range from Egyptian antiques to modern art. Excellent collection of French 19th century painters. A few Picasso and Matisse. One of the best provincial museum of France.
  • Beautiful place! Lovely art.
  • Decent collection for a small city
  • Visit during the temporary exhibition "Kandinsky. The Paris years". The sculptures is superb with very good light exposure! Thanks to all the staff for their sympathy.
