  • Just enjoyed the special exhibition on 'comic strips and mountain' at the museum - was well designed, most pleasant to learn about major authors of 'bande dessinée' inspiration in mountains (from aLpe...  more »
  • Musée de l'Ancien Évêché is next door to Notre-Dame Cathédral, and in the Museum's basement, you can see the archaeological crypt and Baptistère de Grenoble, the remnants of the Baptistry from the earliest Christian times, which was discovered in 1989 in connection with the construction of a tram line. The Museum disseminates tale of Grenoble's bishops from 1200-century onwards and is at the same time, both historical and archaeological museum. Here is also an art museum paintings, but it is not. All lyrics are in French, so it is not helped in this museum, if one does not understand the language. Nevertheless, it is exciting to walk around in the spaces and consider the many exhibits and photos. It is free to visit the Museum, and in the mood to watch it in connection with the visit of Notre-Dame Cathédral.

  • This free Museum is very interesting both for its permanent exhibitions for its temporary exhibition "pic and bubbles". The visit has been great for the whole family. Access is possible with a stroller which is a little more convenient.

  • Very pleasant museum, with several rooms sorted by parts of French History. But the people here were a bit bad about our kids here. They said with insistance they were noisy while they were not, in the meantime a group of visitors were very noisy!
  • Free museum with a nice and compact overview of the regions' history, as well as an archeological cave. Friendly museum staff.
  • Free (everyday?), not a lot on display but the building has an interesting history. The basement is a cool haven on the hottest days ;)
  • Many interesting pieces from Roman time to nowadays through periodic exhibitions. Great architecture too!!
  • Free Art Culture & History
