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.

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.
I liked the museum permanent exhibition. Light, the set of paintings, the whole building itself... Everything seemed perfect. Even the chairs! Impressed to see Chagall and Delaunay!
