Discover Museum of Art and History of Judaism France

The recently-opened Museum of Art and History of Judaism, housed in the delightful Hôtel de Saint-Aignan at the gateway to the Marais, offers a valuable insight into Jewish culture.

It provides an educational overview of the Jewish religion through its ceremonies and traditions. There is also an entire section dedicated to anti-Semitism from the late 19th Century through to the Holocaust, as well as an exhibition of works by major Jewish artists, notably Chagall.
