Musée de Grenoble information
It's worth a trip to Grenoble just to see this museum. The superbly presented collection features a veritable who's who of 20th-century art, including Pierre Bonnard, Calder, Giacometti, Léger, Magritte, Miró, Modigliani, Picabia, Soutine, Nicolas de Staël and Van Dongen. Among the other highlights: superb 19th-century landscapes of the Dauphiné region, four absolutely huge canvases by the 17th-century Spanish artist Zabarán, and the gorgeous, light-filled building itself, opened in 1994. Audioguides (€2) are available in French, English and Italian.
