4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

This was a great surprise and we really enjoyed our time there. Too bad that the store doesn't carry any catalogs in English explaining their holdings.

“Great find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012 via mobile

I happened upon this museum randomly while strolling through Paris. I really enjoyed seeing the Jewish art and history in Paris! (and no, I'm not Jewish). It's a nice thing to do in Paris that's away from all the crowds and tourists. And if you are a student/under 26, it's free!

“Jewish life in Paris”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

This museum is very comprehensive and has some amazing artifacts. I especially loved the display of models of wooden synagogues.While a good portion of the museum is standard. there is a nice accent of Parisian Jewry which is really why one would go here. Allow about 9 minutes. The audio tour is free

“Enriching Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

The Musee d'Art et Histoire du Judaisme is well worth a visit, especially if you plan to visit The Marais and Centre Pompidou which is very close by.

The Jewish Museum is a rich, and beautiful historical collection. We had originally intended to spend 2 hours, but were so captivated that we doubled our time there.

Although a little hard to find one should go out of their way to visit this museum.
