The museum has a free entrance. It's a good place to pop into after a walk in Bastille. One of current expositions shows the life of alpine people. It's very informative and it helps to understand better the culture of the Rhone-Alpes region.

The walk up to the museum, the monastery buildings, the gardens and their collective history is all worth a visit but the exhibitions themselves make up a weird collection. Of all the museums and attractions we visited in Grenoble this is the least one I...More
