The Préfecture and the former library museum are particularly worth a visit, for their ashlar facades with a wide variety of architectural references (Antiquity, Renaissance...). The latter housed the Musée de Grenoble until 1993.
Today, it houses the Plateforme, an information center on the city's urban projects.


Free access.
