Excavated objects and Gallo-Roman ruins

The site of Izernore is well-known among archaeologists and fans of ancient history for its Gallo-Roman temple ruins, which have been listed as a Historic Monument since 1840. But the collection of objects discovered during more recent digs demonstrates that in fact the Gauls occupied this area in the 2nd and 3rd centuries BC before the Romans settled here.

Classed “Museum of France” since 2003, one of 1,218 museums in France to receive the label

A beautiful collection of objects come back to life in a visit featuring reconstructions of environments specific to the world of archaeology.
The collections are laid out in key themes, retracing the different faces of the ancient town of Isarnodurum – what is now Izernore.
