Activities for pupils, students and teachers

Two educational activities are designed for English-speaking groups. The mahJ's educational activities are aimed at all pupils, from nursery school to high school, as well as students and groups from the French Protection judiciaire de la jeunesse.

Libres et égaux

The mahJ's educational activities in English enable a discovery of the permanent collection and of the Jewish Marais - a Jewish district of Paris.

Educational activites in French are designed around major themes: discovering Judaism, social issues, shared cultures, history and memory, artists' views and the mahJ's temporary exhibitions.

The mahJ's multi-disciplinary approach to education places great emphasis on the creative process: whatever the theme and whatever the age of the pupils, the activities are designed to bring participants into direct contact with the works.

A wide range of inter-museum itineraries, one of which is complemented by a digital kit, enable you to effectively extend the educational experience at the mahJ. A wide range of teaching resources are available online for you to consult or download.

There are also activities for teachers, such as educational afternoons and openings. Keep up to date with news for teachers by subscribing to our mailing list!

Focus on the digital educational kit “Culture(s) en partage, shared culture(s)”

Teachers whose class is taking part in the "Shared Cultures" inter-museum programme (in French) at the mahJ and the IMA can receive a free digital educational kit (in French) to prepare and extend their class visits.

This digital kit has been produced with the support of the Délégation interministérielle à la lutte contre le racisme, l'antisémitisme et la haine anti-LGBT (DILCRAH) and the Mutuelle générale de l'Éducation nationale (MGEN).
