Alpine Museum

Chamonix-Mont-Blanc,
Founded in the late 19th century, this Museum showcases the rich historical and artistic heritage of the Mont Blanc area.
EXHIBITION: "MONT BLANC HERITAGE"
The Alpine Museum invites you to discover the historical and artistic heritage of the Mont Blanc area.
The permanent exhibition will take you deep into the history of the Chamonix Valley with collections evoking the early days of mountaineering and the conquest of Mont Blanc, the great scientific ventures at 4,000 metres altitude, the emergence of summer and winter sports, the transformation of the Valley as tourism developed, and a selection of artistic works devoted to the Mer de Glace.
The collections: founded in the late 19th century, the museum conserves and showcases more than 13,000 pieces in its collections, dating from the 18th century to the mid-20th century.
The Alpine Museum is now preparing for its renovation and the selection of works on show may change depending on the restoration work underway and the addition of new pieces.
An emblematic venue: the Museum is now housed in an iconic Belle Epoque building, the former "Chamonix Palace" luxury hotel which opened in May 1914.
Guided visits ("Mont Blanc Heritage" on Wednesdays at 2:30 pm subject to booking up to 5 pm the day before), special events and workshops for all ages are held all year round.
