The Mémorial is on the right bank and not far from the Isle de St Louis; you can cross the Seine from the isle. Evidiently the Memorial is closed on Fridays. Count on a minimum of one hour in order to take your time.

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

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.

Certainly can do the outside part in that time. You would not manage the museum attached to it
