A guided tour in English for everyone: children, teenagers and adults

France has a rich connection to Jewish culture, from the medieval communities of Paris to the modern artists of avant-garde. This English language tour invites you to discover the unique collection of the museum of Jewish art and history, housed in the beautiful 17th century mansion in the Marais, the Hôtel de Saint-Aignan. This collection is one of the finest in the world, comprised of art, historic Judaica, textiles and jewelry. Special importance is given to the Jewish painters of the School of Paris, such as Marc Chagall, and contemporary artists including Christian Boltanski. By the end of this hour and a half tour you will have travelled through one thousand years of Jewish history in France and across the Diaspora.

The 2020 summer programming alternates this tour with the walking tour of the Jewish Marais.

This tour is also available on request for groups (from 1 to 25 people!) in English, German, Hebrew and Spanish.
