Trip Planner: Europe / France / Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes / Isere / Grenoble / Musee de Grenoble
The art of nature is complemented with the art of humans at the Musee de Grenoble, founded by Louis-Joseph Jay in 1798. Although, Jay had to fight to have his plans approved for the 18,270 sq m ( 196,657 sq ft) building, it was eventually completed and touts an uninterrupted tour from 12th to 21st century art. There are artifacts on multiple floors, but don’t forget to visit the museum’s impressive collection of 19th- and 20th-century African artifacts located downstairs.

Excellent collection of fine arts, primary paintings, in a beautiful big spacious building with impressive architecture. This museum is a must-see attraction if you are in Grenoble. The entrance fee for adults is 8EUR. Card payments are accepted too. Based on my experience I would recommend planning at least 2h for the visit of the permanent exhibition. Check the up to date opening times. When I visited the museum was open from 10am to 6:30pm. The collection contains masterpieces of Rodin, Miro, Canaletto, Warhol, Gauguin, Monet, Marc Chagall, Braque, Picasso and many more artists from various epochs.
The Museum of Grenoble is a very beautiful place with stunning architecture. The permanent exhibition features great paintings from great painters and also it has a modern art section. The staff is very kind and they really like what they are doing which is great, since they transfer a positive energy. The museum also hosts temporary exhibitions that you can definitely go for a visit since their subjects are very different. I suggest to visit their official website for more information.
