Oberlin was a pastor at Ban de la Roche for 59 years
The Oberlin Museum pays tribute to the pastor Jean-Frédéric Oberlin, who tried to apply Christian principles to the economic, social, cultural and political life of Ban de la Roche ; by doing this he symbolized two school of thought typical of his time, on the one hand, the age of Reason with its desire for progress and on the other hand social Christianity, to which he gave his active support.
The museum reopened in June 2002 and much of it has been restored.

Museum of the Cevenol Valleys
In this traditionally deeply protestant region, this hostile environment has had its effect on the local inhabitants : farmers here had to be tough, uncompromising, brave and with great willpower to overcome obstacles and difficulties if they were to survive. The Bible has always been their source of inspiration, strength and happiness.
