Housed in the original 17th-century convent Ste-Marie-d’en-Haut and enhanced by the convent’s cloister, gardens, and baroque chapel, this museum lies across the Isère on the way up to La Bastille. A collection of ethnographic and historical mementos of the Dauphine region is on exhibit, along with folk arts and crafts. This place is a quick course on life in the Alps: No other museum gives such a detailed view of the people. Furnishings, tools, artifacts, and replicas of Alpine settings are on display. Check out the special display on pop music, following an interactive exhibit around a space stylized like a cartoon house, where visitors learn how sound effects our daily lives.
