The Museum of Jewish Art and History:
Join us as we delve into the depths of one of Paris’s most beautiful museums. Housed in an old private aristocratic mansion, behind the Louis XIV façade, hides the museum of Jewish History and Art, a rich testament to a people who have lived in the background of France for almost 2,000 years.
This “Virtual tour” will take you through the collection, following the early development of Jewish history in Paris, before leading you through a fine collection of Judaica, and finally looking at the trials and tribulation faced by French Jewry at the end of the 19th century, which would shape the future of the nation’s Jews all the way to today.

A wonderful Virtual Tour of history and places. We may not be able to go there yet – so come travel virtually.
Liberty, Equality, Brotherhood. These three words echo through the Republic today.
From 1789, for the next decade France was plunged into one of the most destructive and dramatic periods of French history. As the Ancient Regime crumbled it led to the building of a New Order which would lay the foundations of modern France.
You will be swept up in the energy and passion of 18th century France, discovering the men and women who made it happen, the moments which shaped the nation, and the horror of the terror as the murderous dog of the Revolution turned on the very hand that fed it.
