Le Poët-Laval

Musée du protestantisme dauphinois

The Museum of Protestantism in the Dauphiné is located in the picturesque medieval village of le Poët Laval, in the what was once the town hall before it became a Protestant church in the seventeenth century and and then one of the rare Protestant buildings not to be destroyed after the revocation in 1685 of the Edict of Nantes.

The museum, created in 1961, looks back, through the use of documents and objects, at the major periods of the history of Protestantism in the Dauphiné.

Though it is not exclusively concerned with the Second World War, one display case addresses the participation of Protestants in the Resistance in and around Dieulefit, as well as saving Jews, intellectuals and artists.
