Musée des troupes de montagne

The Musée des troupes de montagne (Mountain Troops Museum) is a military museum located in the Bastille fort in Grenoble.

Inaugurated in October 2009, the museum takes an ethnological, anthropological, and sociological look at the life of mountain troops. All the presented themes place man, as the mountain soldier, in his environment.

Six thematic areas are presented: History of the Mountain Troops, Conquering and Surviving in the Mountains, Combat, Living in the Mountains and with the Local Population, Culture and Identity, and Alongside the Mountain Troops.

In a privileged setting, at the heart of an old fortress, the museum offers visitors an experience unique in France, which associates man and the mountain.
