Through its collections, the Hières-sur-Amby museum, located below the Larina archaeological site, presents the history of the settlement in Isle Crémieu, from Prehistory to the early Middle-Ages.
Entirely renovated and extended, 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 from Prehistory to the early Middle-Age.
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, all these pieces offer a unique experience to the visitors.
With what are sometimes exceptional archaeological objects, the understanding of 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.
Weapons, 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.
Période(s) d'ouvertureFrom 25/05 to 30/09 between 2 pm and 6 pm.
Closed on Sunday.
Closed exceptionally on Feast of the Ascension, Whit Monday, July 14th and August 15th.
