Things to see and do

The museum "Memoirs of Mountaineering"

A Saint-Christophe-en-Oisans, there is a mountain guide from father to son, as in where Pierre Gaspard, the father, was the first to cross the Meije in 1887. Here, the memories of both are roped in the family patrimony and local levels. The job has he changed? So it's no coincidence that the museum Memoirs of Mountaineering planted his standard in the small hilltop village of Valley Vénéon.

The museum is open from June to September from 10am to 12pm and from 14:30 to 18. Other areas of school holidays 14h to 17h.
