Musée d'Art Juif Museum In Paris France

The Musée d'Art Juif was a museum set up in the 1940's to pay homage to the Jews and the Jewish culture that was destroyed by the holocaust.

The first collections of the museum comprised lots of religious objects that were originally taken by the Nazis and then, through the initiative of Léon Frenkiel, the museum's founder, there were documents on European synagogue architecture added to the museum.

Musée d'Art Juif Museum In Paris France

In the early years of the Musée d'Art Juif the exhibits mainly consisted of European religious objects, but then Marie Chabchay, the museum's first curator, embarked on building up a collection of graphic works by Russian and German Jewish artists.  Works then followed this from artists at the Paris school and various other items that were donated to the museum.

The original museum was situated in the Montmartre area of Paris, but the successor to this museum is the Musée d'art et d'histoire du Judaïsme, which is now housed within a mansion called the Hotel de Saint Aignan.

The other main part of the collection comes from the Musée national du Moyen Âge and this amalgamation of the exhibits from the different museums is now situated in the heart of the Marais area in the 3rd arrondissement of Paris, France.

The new site of the museum was officially opened in 1998 and includes collections and exhibits ranging from sculpture, photography, textiles, jewellery and much more.

To find out more about this fantastic museum, you would need to go to the page dedicated to the Musée d'art et d'histoire du Judaïsme where you will find details on the opening times and other interesting facts.
