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.

  • I really took interest in the display of living conditions in alpine dwellings in past centuries. Good expo on the history of ski.

  • I enjoyed it, top floor of the permanent expo is about the history of people living in the surrounding mountains, quite interesting. free on some days.

  • Good museum. Large area and free entry.

  • Great museum with multi topics on Alps

  • Exposition sur la musique rigolote et amusantes pour les enfants. Un cadre joli mais un peut compliqué a retrouvé le bon sens de circulation. Très bon accueil.
