The juxtaposition of contemporary site specific installations and architecture with the remainder of the archeological tombs was exotic and captivating. I suggest this experience. Not the best place for children though. It might be too much. This museum is Free and and next to the Grenoble museum. So, if you are visiting the Grenoble museum I suggest visiting there as...

fantastic museum. I though it would be quickly done but not at all. I love the modern touch to put in value every bit of this place: screen you can touch to know detail of history or special lighting.

We went there today. It was such an impressive restoration of the archaeological site. This was our first time to visit such a museum and it was really interesting to see the history and also how it was designed as a museum to show 2,000 years history of St. Laurent church.

You can not beat a free visit to this museum. It is a small informative museum and if you have the time I would recommend a visit

What a well laid out and fascinating place. Free to enter and free audio guides. Just the right amount of information. Seeing the church and how it was built, re-built and extended was so interesting. Very atmospheric. A must-see!

This place is more like a visit to an archeological dig than a museum. The layers of the church have been peeled back so that you can see the successive buildings, right from the earliest crypt in 521AD through to the most modern. Despite entering at ground level, you are entering the church's gallery and then walk through the building,... More

This well-arranged display of archeological findings of different eras is well put in context in the Saint Laurent Basilica. The visit path is well delimited in spite of the main corridors and stairs and offers some surprise views of the main attraction.

This is essentially a church with the floor removed to reveal the remains of earlier buildings dating back to the earliest centuries of Christianity. It is free to visit, there is a free audio guide and the lady on the desk was really nice and helpful - when I said I could only make a very brief visit she suggested... More
