  • In Paris and being passionate about music, it seemed necessary to me to exposure Schönberg at the Museum of Art and history of Judaism. I very much liked, even if I have not always found very accessible. In particular, I think that everything about the twelve-tone serial was not adequately explained. In addition, that was sorely lacking of music to listen to, there would be only two Helmets on every floor. On the other hand, the part of the exhibition dedicated to the paintings by Schoenberg and his relationship with Kandinsky was great. The Museum staff is also very friendly, those over to evacuate rooms before closing a lot less (and I weigh my words...). Conclusion: interesting exhibition that makes me want to return to the Museum, visit the permanent exhibits this time.

  • 这真是个真正艺术和历史的博物馆。我相信这里的藏品都是在12世纪的。这里的史前古器物超棒,有银器和金器。这家博物馆展示了几百年前生活在法国的犹太人的历史。这些藏品不是政治的,而是具有艺术和历史性的。这个博物馆是在一个漂亮的老公馆里。博物馆在周六关闭,比较安全。
  • Very nice Museum and free for art students.
