Chamonix Alpine Museum (Le Musee Alpin) Tours

Chamonix Alpine Museum (Le Musee Alpin)
Chamonix’s Alpine Museum is housed in a former Palace dating back to the early 20th century and highlights the development of the city’s tourism, back from when visitors first travelled to Chamonix to admire the glaciers up until the construction of the cable cars.A large collection of prints illustrates the many changes the valley faced between the 18th and the 20th centuries as mountaineering slowly became a thing. Visitors will also find photographs, relief maps, rock crystals, ancient objects, and costumes.
