My wife and I visited this memorial while we were on holiday in Paris. We are not Jewish but we felt that we should review this disturbing history. There is no admission fee. When you enter the museum, you will see the Wall of Names...More

If you visit Paris but fail to visit Memorial de la Shoah you have missed one of the most important places in the city. We always stay in Le Marais when we visit Paris and love the friendliness and character of the 4th arrondissement. We...More

The Memorial is not very in depth. I thought there would be a lot more. I did find some relatives names on the wall of people sent to the death camps and it made a big impression on me. However, the main exhibit (if not...More

In what is now a busy, modern European city, it's easy to forget the pain that Paris, indeed the whole of France, experienced during the 2nd world war. This charming, thoughtful museum brings home exactly what happened - the deportations, the mass murder - that...More

This museum, slightly off the main Rue de Rivoli is mostly well done. I say mostly because many of the photos are displayed too high to see. The descriptions are in French and English so that's a good thing for us Yanks, but it was...More

Visited from Israel. Disappointed to realise everything is in French, with no subtitles or alternatives for others to understand the story and context. Would have expected at least an English version of some of the things.

As with other Holocaust Memorials this one provides the atmosphere conducive to reflecting on the horror of the Nazi's relentless effort to exterminate the Jews. What is unique here is the exhibit of the comics portrayal of the story. It was easy to understand the...More

When I saw this on my map, I was expecting a memorial plaque or statue. WRONG AGAIN! This is one of the best Holocaust displays I have seen. The outside stone work and wall listing all of the citizens murdered by the Nazis is a...More

Le Marais
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

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.
