Curated with deep love and respect for the Jewish experience in France, this museum is a must-see, ideally visited when you can take your time and attempt to take in a small percentage of all there is to see and feel here.

Was not expecting such an outstanding memorial. Largest holocaust memorial in Europe. Took us over 4 hours and still did not finish. Well worth the trip just to see the tribute to the children.

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

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.

Certainly can do the outside part in that time. You would not manage the museum attached to it
