What an amazing museum and memorial. The fact that it's free is crazy. The photos and stories are heart wrenching and poignant but also such a relevant part of Paris' history. I always think that I will be prepared for the emotions that places like...More

This museum, slightly off the main Rue de Rivoli is mostly well done. I say mostly because many of the photos are displayed too high to see. The descriptions are in French and English so that's a good thing for us Yanks, but it was...More

The Mémorial is on the right bank and not far from the Isle de St Louis; you can cross the Seine from the isle. Evidiently the Memorial is closed on Fridays. Count on a minimum of one hour in order to take your time.

This recent museum - it opened its door in 2005 - is situated in the heart of the Marais district and certainly worth a visit. It brings in great detail the tragedy of the Jewish community in Paris, France and the whole of Europe. The...More

Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets

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

I don't recall there being an audioguide for « Shoah et bande dessinée ». The exhibit is self-explanatory by reading the posted commentaries in French beside each exhibit. I don't recall whether the commentaries were in... More

There are elevators, however, some parts are not accessible. You may want to call ahead, in case there are accessibility features I was not aware of. They speak English.
