This museum brings to life the history of the Resistance in the Vassieux region. It is a very moving and poignant tribute. The museum itself is very modern and bright, audio guides are available in many languages. Well worth a visit.

Smallish museum but it was created by one of the "actors" of the drama that took place there which makes it all the more valuable and touching.
