The museum of the mountain troops invites you into the world of a mountain soldier.

The museum gives a real opportunity for the public to meet and speak with the mountains troops.
An audio-guide is available to enhance your visit (french, english, italien and deutch).

Integrated to the historic La Bastille site, which has become the first tourist attraction in the region, the mountain troops museum adresses to a very wide audience and more particularly to families. In a privileged setting, in the heart of the fortress, the museum presents to its visitors a unique place in France, which associates man and mountain. It’s this gathering that helped build the mountain troops. The visiting of the museum is the natural extension of La Bastille. Overlooked 200meters above by the memorial for the mountain soldiers, this museum recalls also that the history of La Bastille and Grenoble is closely imbricted to the history of the moutain troops.

Visiting the Museum
Through a rich collection, an innovative museography, the museum offers to its visitors an attractive circuit which presents the story of the mountain troops from their origin to nowadays. A voice will ralate the human adventure of the alpine men thanks to a multilingual audio-guide.
The course is based on a thoroughly modern museum which diverges from the classical model of the Military Museum and highlights exceptional objects. A spectacular and realistic scenography submerges completely the visitor in the mountain soldiers epic by the reconstruction, at a real scale, the intense scenes like a trench from First World War or a Maginot line room.
Besides the historical aspect addressed in the background, a human approach of the mountain troops is highlighted: all the themes bring man to the center of all concerns, soldier of the mountain in his environment. The museum tour deals successively with : “the mountain troops in history”, “conquer, live and fight in mountains”, “integration to territories and to population”, “indentity and culture”, “the profession of a mountain soldier today”…
