The museum's explanatory texts

Middle-Age Hall Middle-Age Hall

Explanatory texts are vital in a museum whose vocation is to render a complex history and culture understandable. They were designed by Philippe Cazal.

The explanatory texts shed light through the written word, the fundament of Jewish civilisation.

To provide several levels of information, each room has texts adapted to different presentation formats:

- Room titles written directly on the wall in Roman and Hebrew characters.

- Bilingual room titles, in French and English, illustrated and mounted in frames on the walls.

- Texts in glass cases and detailed cards.

- Reading desks, in the window embrasures throughout the museum visit, developing subjects associated with the room’s theme.

The aim of this explanatory text system is to enable the visitor to satisfy his individual need to understand and discover.
