This place wouldn’t have has much going for it hadn’t been for a lucky break in 1989. There were building a tramway next to the museum and the digging turned up the remains of a much older baptistery – one dating from between the first and third century AD. There’s even the remains of a city wall from during that time. Other than that, the museum contains a number of relics, objects of historical interest, and an exhibition outlining the first settlement of these Alpine regions.

  • One temporary, rotating exhibit and two permanent ones with the old roman baptystery and prehistoric featured. Interesting and well presented although no english signage is present. The entry is free and you can enjoy the visit of the whole museum in two hours, more of less depending on your interest.

  • Nice museum, with an audio guide in English. A bit boring in general but well kept exhibitions, the best part is the baptiserie. And the entrance is for free!

  • Adjoining the imposing Cathedrale Notre Dame is the 14th-century Bishop’s Palace, the former residence of Grenoble’s bishops. No longer used as a bishop’s palace, it now houses the small but superb Musee de l’Ancien Eveche, a history museum that contains unique pottery pieces excavated out of the Roman-era crypt that spreads out below the cathedral square. The vaulted building itself is worth a visit for its simple but provoking architecture. The highlight is unquestionably the 4th-century underground baptistery which still accommodates the original baptismal font formerly used for the baptism of adult converts on Easter night. Remnants of intact sections of old Roman walls can be examined in the adjoining crypt. The highlights of the exhibits in the museum are: (i) the bronze Statuette de Venus that dates back to the second century (ii) a unique pottery amphora known as the ‘cruche’ dating back to the first century (iii) an artistic threesome composition that dates back to 1968, made in recognition of the Jeux Olympiques de Grenoble (iv) a 17th-century world-renowned oil-on-canvas portrait of Claudine de Berenger Entrance to the museum is free. Entrance is through the gate on Rue Tres-Cloitres, right behind the cathedral.

  • Very interesting,ticket are free,you can see history of france from sencuris

  • Very pleasant museum, with several rooms sorted by parts of French History. But the people here were a bit bad about our kids here. They said with insistance they were noisy while they were not, in the meantime a group of visitors were very noisy!
