How to get there

The museum is located in the heart of Chamonix’s main city center, within walking distance of both the train station and the Place du Mont Blanc bus stop. Parking in the center of Chamonix can be difficult, so if arriving by car, leave your car at one of the car parks outside the city limits and plan to arrive by foot.

The Espace Tairraz and Crystal Museum

Many visitors combine a visit to the Alpine Museum with a visit to the Espace Tairraz and Crystal Museum since admission to one allows free access to the other. The Espace Tairraz features an innovative mountaineering simulator where you can climb famous peaks without the risk, and the Crystal Museum, which showcases a collection of minerals and crystals collected in the local mountains including smoked quartz and pink luminescent fluorspar.
