I've read a lot over the years about the Holocaust, and France during that time, but I learned so much at this extremely detailed, in-depth, comprehensive Memorial. Very somber, very reverent.

Amazed that this incredibly thorough, detailed and moving exhibition is free!! Excellent audio tour for only €5 with all exhibits written up in French, English and even some in Hebrew too. Definitely worth a visit... lest we forget

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.

While Paris likes to portray itself as the City of Light... it also has had very "Dark Moments". This Memorial documents one of these dark periods when 75,000+ French Jews were deported to Germany for extermination. For anyone wanting to improve their understanding of Paris...More

boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional

you'll come across little gems of architecture
spanning the centuries, from understated medieval
towers to classical libraries and 17th century
splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of

The audio guide is for the permanent exhibit. If you can, get a docent instead of the audio guide. The docents are extremely knowledgeable, and speak English.

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
