  • Brilliant museum with very well-designed and thought-provoking exhibits. The children's memorial is comparable to that at Yad Vashem and a must see for anyone within the area. I highly recommend this museum to anyone, including young children, for there is something meaningful to learn from here for everyone. It is unique from other holocaust museums for it highlights the role of the French people and government in deporting to death camps and housing in concentration camps more than 70,000 French Jewish civilians, including 11,600 children, during WWII. Tarifs are 4€ for adults, 2€ for students and other groups, and free for minors under 18. The experience that comes with it is priceless.
  • This is a special place to recall the fate of children lost to France due the holocaust. There is an English guide book to help you work through the museum. The displays are in French. There is an intuitive presentation to the displays so that a lack of language skills does not totally detract from the experience. The museum is small still please allow yourself a couple of hours to explore the experience.
