NileGuide Expert tip:

Admission is free, so there's no reason not to visit the Musée Dauphinois. You still must ask for a ticket at the entrance, though.


The Musée Dauphinois is housed in the Sainte Marie d'en Haut convent, which was founded by François de Sales and Jeanne de Chantal. The building itself, with its Baroque chapel and cloistered gardens are worth the visit.

Inside, the museum, which presents itself as a "regional museum of man" hosts two permanent exhibits: The People of the Alps and The Great History of Skiing. Two or three temporary exhibits are hosted simultaneously and last six months to a year.  These exhibits look at regional life, the Dauphiné province, the Alps in general, and sometimes even at foreign mountain societies.

Admission is free.
