Visiting the Maison d’Izieu
For information concerning visits
and reservations for all groups,
contact Océane Roux-Villedieu (secretarial office):
Maison d’Izieu, along with “relay teachers” from the Belley secondary school, help teachers and accompanying adults prepare their visit to the Maison d’Izieu and support their educational projects.
They can make suggestions on preparing young visitors for the Memorial: teaching the chronological milestones of the period, presenting main concepts and discussing civic issues specific to this place of remembrance.
A basic visit takes around two hours.
Maison d’Izieu guides oversee the basic visit, which involves the Barn and the House. Students are divided into groups of 30 maximum.
Maison d’Izieu guides present the site and its history, and remain available throughout the visit.
As part of heritage coursework or artistic and cultural projects, groups or classes of young people may stay at the Maison d’Izieu for a period lasting from two days to one week.
Lodging is provided by the Maison des Isles du Rhône, located in the neighbouring village of Brégnier-Cordon. This hostel provides accommodation for groups of young people and adults consisting of rooms only or full board. Educational programmes and activities centred on the environment and sustainable development are offered throughout the year.
