Musee Dauphinois - Review
The Dauphine used to be a province of France that’s now defunct. This county museum presents archaeological, ethnographic and historical account of that region and of France in general. Founded in 1906, the museum sits in the beautiful monastery of St. Marie to High – a building that’s variously been used as a prison, a barracks and as a boarding house over the years – and is brilliant bit of Baroque architecture, one of the rare ones in the area. And if you thought this museum might be boring, you were wrong; it’s full of charming anecdotes that covers topics like bootlegging. To top this off, the Museum overlooks Grenoble, so there’s quite a fantastic view from the terrace.

Musee Dauphinois, Grenoble Reviews
Pleasantly surprised how interesting this place was. Lots of history to do with the 1968 Winter Olympics and a fantastic view from the rooftop garden area.
Had so much fun here! Great exhibits in a pretty part of the city. Very glad we went!
Excellent local exhibits, a really fun 68 winter Olympics exhibit on now, complete with Jean Claude killy's medals and skis! Super neat and super free. Bring anyone.
Museum a little weird, but could be cool for someone interested in the history of Grenoble and surrounding Alps.
Lovely place. Don't forget to have a look at the garden in the back.
