  • The notable exception of the Carnavalet Museum in Paris, there only very few museums who devote a part of their exhibition space to the French Revolution. One Museum in the world is entirely and solely dedicated to the French Revolution: it turns to Vizille. Set partly in the old Castle of the Dukes of Lesdiguières (17th century), partly in new premises and exposed concrete, the Museum is always to visit only because it is free. Otherwise, the exhibition and the Museum are somewhat bizarre and disconcerting. The Museum is actually a place dedicated to the exhibition of works dealing with the Revolution, except that most of the works date from the 19th century. We appreciate even when some objects of times and especially the bust of Robespierre in 1791! I think a lot of people come only because the site is free and to visit the inside of the Castle, and not the "Museum" itself. Anyway, still missing on Earth a real museum dedicated to the French Revolution, and therefore receiving the means of the State, and not the Department as is the case in Vizille.
