Security was tight to get in. Lovely peaceful setting in grand building however the exhibition spaces are smaller and tightly spaced. Large attractive courtyard with metal sculptures. I found quite a few pieces that interested me. Loved the Chaim soutien ptg.

I really wanted to like this museum. We visited it on a day devoted to the Marais after visiting the Museum of Hunting and Nature and the Picasso Museum (both *highly* recommended). This museum is neither a comprehensive history of Jewish art nor history. Maybe...More

I found out about this museum by accident and determined to go there. It is easy to find leaving the métro at Hôtel de Ville and walking north up the Rue du Temple. It is number 71 on the left. The entrance is through strict...More

On this trip to Paris, my wife and I made a point of visiting several smaller museums (in addition to the biggies like the Louvre). I thought the concept for this museum seemed appealing, and it's billed as the largest museum of Jewish art and...More

Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets
that beg to be explored. It bursts with small
boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional
restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner,
you'll come across little gems of architecture
spanning the centuries, from understated medieval
towers to classical libraries and 17th century
splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of
