About museum

Grande Chartreuse monastery is the head monastery of the Carthusian order. It is located in the Chartreuse Mountains, north of the city of Grenoble, in the commune of Saint-Pierre-de-Chartreuse (Isere), France. In 1084, Saint Hugh gave it to hermit Saint Bruno and his followers who founded the Carthusian Order. Today, visitors are not permitted at Grand Chartreuse, and motor vehicles are prohibited on the surrounding roads. However, a museum of the Carthusian order and the lives of its monks and nuns stands about two kilometers away. This renaissance building has almost the same architecture as the monastery. Completely renovated, this museum enables you to discover the monastery as if you were there and to share the faith and emotion of these monks, thanks to documents, everyday life objects, engravings, but also films and testimonials. Created in 1957, the museum has already welcomed 5,5 million visitors who came to enjoy a peaceful atmosphere. It is located in the heart of the Chartreuse Mountains, only 2 km far from the monastery founded by Saint Bruno in 1084. This intentionally modern project is aimed at giving you the keys to understand the mystery of the Carthusian Order and to answer your questions about their human and spiritual life.
