Musée de la Résistance et de la Déportation de l'Isère – Maison des Droits de l'Homme
At the initiative of Resistants, deported persons and teachers, Isère opened in the 1960s. A history and society museum with a pedagogical objective, it explains and passes on the events of 1939-45 based on local facts and lived experiences.
Taken over by the département in 1994, its major mission is to interest youth, awaken their curiosity and elicit their reflection. Solidly grounded in its period, its programming and historical and scientific work raise questions in current events regarding the values of Resistance and those of human rights.
Well-rounded cultural programming, in connection with the permanent and temporary exhibits, provides visitors with a variety of means of addressing the museum’s themes.
Cultural programming throughout the year, in connection with the permanent and temporary exhibits: Parlement Thursdays, Museum Meet-Ups, youth programming (in addition to school visits) and Museum in the Open Air, including the département’s Museum Festival and European Heritage Days.
A special event: The Resistance Race on May 8.
