While in Paris we walked here and went thru the museum. Very powerful. They also had a nice outdoor setting for speakers and other events that are held there.

This is an excellent memorial / museum, and having it in a redone cave adds to the effect. They had quotes engraved in the wall and that was a nice touch. They covered the various groups that were targeted by the Nazis, the lives they...More

I cannot stay there because I lost my grandparents in WWII. But people should go just like the various Holocaust Museums.

I visited on June 13. It is closed on Mondays. Also it was suggested that I have a reservation although it is free to enter. The personnel there are very kind.

We found this by chance, and decided to take a look. We had it to ourselves, which added to the power of the memorial. It is very simply done, but all the more powerful for that, reminding us of the horrors which were very real....More

Unfortunately it was closed when we were there but, it was very nice being in this area after all the crowd of Notre Dame. It is located under the ground in "Square de l'Ile de France", a small park right behind the Notre Dame complex

Just a few steps away from Notre Dame Cathedral on the Ile de la Cite. Not well known or highlighted but worth seeing. A quiet place for reflection and remembrance.

Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very

Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the

before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic
Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the
Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,
