The museum also houses a rich collection of Egyptian, Greek, and Etruscan artifacts: funeral equipment, everyday objects, sarcophagi, and more.

The current museum building was inaugurated in 1994 and its architecture is remarkably contemporary. The François Mittérand Esplanade and the nearby Albert Michallon park together are home to 15 outstanding modern sculptures.
In addition to the permanent collection with more than 900 paintings and sculptures, the Grenoble Museum of Art hosts nationally- and internationally-acclaimed temporary exhibits.
