The Museum of Jewish Art and History presents in the heart of Paris, the third largest collection in the world on Judaism after the Israel Museum in Jerusalem and the Jewish Museum in New York.
Located in an elegant private Hotel in the Marais district, it traces the evolution of the Jewish world through its artistic and cultural heritage and gives a privileged place to the history of Jews in France, while evoking the communities of Europe and North Africa that have contributed to shaping the physiognomy of contemporary French Judaism.

The collections bring together works of art, textiles, furniture and cult objects, manuscripts and unique historical documents from the Middle Ages to the contemporary period.

The museum also offers a rich cultural programme in its auditorium, mediatheque, bookshop and collection tour.

You can also discover the Marais and its Carnavalet Museum to learn about the History of Paris and its inhabitants. An incredible collection!
