I was a little confused at first, with the security checkpoint right off the street, but once inside, it was well worth it. None all of it was translated in English, so I stumbled through with my limited french vocabulary, but my husband and daughters...More

We visited this place on a whim, as we had a few minutes, and while there are some aspects I'd suggest tweaking, it definitely exceeded expectations. Entry was free, which is very generous. The history leading up to the Holocaust, the horrific period, and the...More

The center features two areas for temporary exhibits related to WWII. The visit can take as little as 40 minutes including the memorial, the wall of victims, the wall of the righteous (which is outside), the eternal flame and the exhibits. Quite a moving experience

Well done memorial. Was very difficult to find and people had no clue were it was located. I wish we had more time to spend there .

We have been to Holocaust Memorials all over the world but this one does no stack up. It is primarily text and newspaper scraps. It tells an important story and maybe they need a generous sponsor to step up. The building itself is very nice...More

If you love your History and want to connect with the past then is well worth a visit. Can be a lot to take in and will leave you with a lot to think about - but you must go!

This is a thought provoking place to visit, with the names of those killed in the Holocaust by year and alphabetical order engraved on walls in their inner courtyard. Helps you understand the history of Jews in Europe and some of the events before and...More

This is a very well-done Shoah Memorial. France, and Paris in particular, was not let off the hook for their complicity with the Nazis. The history was not whitewashed and was explained quite well. The wall of names was poignant. I would recommend visiting this...More

"Shoah" is Hebrew term for "destruction", and this museum is dedicated to the victims of such catastrophe. I had been to the entrance of the museum 3 times and every time, I just could not make myself go inside it. I spent almost 3 hours...More

The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets
that beg to be explored. It bursts with small
boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional
restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner,
you'll come across little gems of architecture
spanning the centuries, from understated medieval
towers to classical libraries and 17th century
splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of

While there is no such specific exhibit, I beg to differ from the previous response. This is an extremely touching memorial to the 76,000 French victims of the Holocaust and those of us who are descendants, survivors, Jews... More
