Presentation

Through its collections, the Hières-sur-Amby museum, located below the Larina archaeological site, presents the history of the settlement in Isle Crémieu, from the middle of Prehistory to the early Middle Ages
Entirely renovated and enlarged, the museum offers a new and original look at the people who wrote the history of Isle Crémieu. It is located in the heart of the village dominated by the cliffs and the Larina archaeological site.
Designed to facilitate the understanding of archaeology and the relationship of man to his environment, the museum traces the history of human occupation of the prehistoric region to the early Middle Ages.
From the prehistoric ceramics from the La Balme caves to the archaeological remains at the Larina site, from the tomb of the Celtic Prince and the Gallo-Roman villa of St Romain de Jalionas to the chariot burial of a gallic aristocrat from Verna, visitors enjoy an original visit.
With what are sometimes exceptional archaeological objects, the understanding of the time is facilitated by the interpretation of the remains with the help of maps, models and many reconstructions.
Throughout a simple and illustrated chronology, the daily life, lifestyles, conflicts and funerary rites of the successive populations on the territory are unveiled.
Armament, ornaments, crafts, burials... all the elements are presented in the exhibition, allowing visitors to appreciate and interpret the technical, artistic and architectural developments.
The museum now has a temporary exhibition hall, where it features a very wide variety of displays.
