The Musée Dauphinois is an ethnographic, archaeological, historical and social museum covering the area of the former French province of Le Dauphiné, but not only that, it is also a museum of restitution and dissemination. It is simply impossible to define the Musée Dauphinois in one sentence! The best plan is to go and visit it; it is a truly magnificent place and is well worth a detour!
The museum is open 6 days a week (closed Tuesdays) and closed on 1 January, 1 May and 25 December. It is open from 10.00 to 18.00 on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and 10.00 to 19.00 on Saturdays and Sundays.

This villa, built around 1867 in Arab-Andalusian style, reflects the taste for orientalism that developed in the mid-nineteenth century. It is the oldest French historic monument in moulded cement, at a time when this new material was generally reserved for decoration only. It has been a “classified historic monument” since 1986.
