Occupying a 17th-century convent, this département-run museum has examined the people, cultures, crafts and traditions of the Dauphiné highlands since 1906. Permanent exhibitions in French and English – tracing subjects such as the history of skiing (from the Stone Age to the snowboard age) – are complemented by well-curated temporary displays. It's situated on the hillside below Fort de la Bastille, 300m up the hill from Pont St-Laurent over the River Isère.
