This is a beautiful old building with lots of history. The expos are free and are really interesting. The building is located in one of the oldest areas of Grenoble.

My favorite part of this free and very interesting museum is the baptistery, a real jewel! The place is full of history and the staff is very nice. The house and gardens are also very beautiful.

This is a Museum built on an old church! A nice 30 minute walk through. It's free! You're allowed to take photos.

All the museums in Grenoble are free for everyone, unless special expositions. The museum is mostly for its underground Romain ruins of Cularo, ancient name of Grenoble. / It is worth of stop there when in downtown Grenoble. Especially a nice place to cool down...More

It's great that it's free, but it's too bad there's absolutely no English, so tourists who don't understand French are left simply admiring the exhibits. The exhibits and the layout of the museum were nice, and I felt like my experience would have been great...More
