5 Museums In Paris You Must Visit

Musee D’Art et Histoire du Judaisme

While not in the Jewish quarter proper, this is one of the museums in Paris that bends over backward to “explore Judaism’s different transmissions in the communities where they developed.” It includes the now ethnically chic Rue des Rosiers in Paris. It also does a fine job representing Jewish peoples from Eastern Europe, North Africa and parts of the Middle East. In the palatial Hôtel de Saint-Aignan, a white stone fortress in the Marais, it exhibits moving and comprehensive displays from all brackets of Jewish life in an elegant and immaculate fashion.
