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.
