Musee de Grenoble, Grenoble

4.5
#1 of 48 in Museums in Isere
The art of nature is complemented with the art of humans at the Musee 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.

  • It's a good size museum,arrangement is super logical. Very easy to follow and see continuation and development of art styles. The works of artists from the area are simply beautiful. Staff very friendly. Some sections were closed for renovations.
  • A must-go in Grenoble. My favourite part were the pointillist paintings of Cross and Signac, but there is such versatility that everyone will find something they like. Impressive a collection worth a much bigger city.
  • The pride of Grenoble. The arts from all the centuries are shown. Lots of space. Very nice settings.
  • Very beautiful museum! The set up is great and there are so many lovely pieces.
  • The free entrance for under 26 age is great advantage! The art and culture expressions should be available for youngs in any possible form. Security looks also truthworthy, there is only lack of descriptions
