Musée de Grenoble, Grenoble

(420+ reviews on the web)
Art 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.

  • Whether to admire Kandinsky or to stroll through the permanent collections, the Museum is a pleasure at each visit. I recommend highly, alone or with family, two or friends.

  • 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.
