Description

The Musée d’Art et d’Histoire du Judaïsme (mahJ) is housed in the Hôtel de Saint-Aignan, one of the most beautiful buildings in the Marais, dating from the 17th century and beautifully restored. It offers an exceptional setting for a wide range of private events. This venue can become yours to organize a tour of the permanent collection or a temporary exhibition, with or without a tour guide. The 200-seat auditorium, the vaulted stables and the Hall are all available for seminars, talks, private screenings, breakfasts, receptions (with the exception of celebrations of a religious nature).
The elegant main courtyard can be hired from May to October, for the organization of receptions (up to 500 guests) or sit-down dinners (300 people), and the stable courtyard for a more intimate cocktail party (60 people).
Finally, the spaces of the Museum can be rented for film shoots (fiction, documentaries, photographs ...).
Ideally located in the heart of Paris, widely served by public transport, this place can be yours for a quality event.
