    The Museum of Resistance and Deportation of Ain


    Located in Nantua’s former prison, a town which received the Resistance Medal, the Museum of Resistance and Deportation of Ain retraces the history of World War II as experienced by residents of Ain.

    The museum has been entirely renovated and updated, and presents a rich collection of remarkable objects, documents and testimonies from the region, highlighting the personal experiences of men and women from Ain. Through Ain’s history, gain an insight into France between 1939 and 1945 with a visit to the museum.

    Now accessible to all following recent improvement works and with new interactive multimedia tools (such as animated maps, video
    projections, touchscreen displays and sensory objects), the museum works to ensure that the visit is as comfortable as possible for all visitors and takes a new look at the Second World War.

    This refurbishment work was carried out with the support of the Foundation for the Memory of the Shoah.
