Musée de la Résistance en Drôme et de la Déportation
The Museum of Resistance in the Drôme and Deportation is in the center of Romans-sur-Isère. A municipal Museum, it is located in the heritage site of the convent of the Visitation. It opened in 1974 on the initiative of a committee that brought together associations of former resistants and deported people; a major renovation took place in 1994.
The pedagogically-oriented visit sets local history in the context of the world war. Photos, archival documents, objects, sound and audiovisual documents combine to present a chronological history of the period, from the rise of Nazism to the Liberation of Drôme.
A few streets away, the Archives and documentation of the Museum is available to visitors.
