Description

The district Le Marais used to be a bourgeois area in the past and a major center of the Paris Jewish community that still exists today. Nowadays “Le Marais” became a trendy place for the night life, art Gallery and more. It has also lot of history and architecture with Place des Vosges to offer to its visitors.
Le Marais (“The Marsh”) is a historic district in Paris, France. In the 16th century the aristocracy built here their residences which can be still seen here. The area is home to many museums, art galleries and historic sites. It spreads across parts of the 3rd and 4th arrondissements in Paris (on the Rive Droite, or Right Bank, of the Seine). The Marais is now one of Paris’ main localities for art galleries. Following its rehabilitation, the Marais has become a fashionable district, home to many trendy restaurants, fashion houses, and hip galleries. The neighbourhood has experienced a growing gay presence since the 1980s, as evidenced by the existence of many gay cafés, nightclubs, cabarets and shops. These establishments are mainly concentrated in the southwestern portion of the Marais, many on or near the streets Sainte-Croix de la Bretonnerie and rue des Archives. The Marais is also known for the Chinese community it hosts. Other features of the neighbourhood include the Musée Picasso, the house of Nicolas Flamel, the Musée Cognacq-Jay, the Musée Carnavalet and the new and very popular Café Charlot.
Place des Vosges
Originally known as the Place Royale, the “Place des Vosges” was built by Henri IV from 1605 to 1612. Situated in Marais district of Paris, it is the oldest planned square in Paris. “Baptiste du Cerceau” designed the building in the form of a square with all other construction bordering the square follow the same design. The result is a symmetrical layout of houses with red brick and white stone facades, steep slate roofs and dorm windows, all constructed over arcades.

The Carnavalet Museum in Paris is dedicated to the history of the city. The museum occupies two neighboring mansions: the Hôtel Carnavalet and the former Hôtel Le Peletier de Saint Fargeau. On the advice of Baron Haussmann, the civil servant who transformed Paris in the latter half of the 19th century, the Hôtel Carnavalet was purchased by the Municipal Council of Paris in 1866; it was opened to the public in 1880.

Georges Cain (1856-1919), an artist and writer, spent much of his life, from 1897 to 1914, serving as the guardian of the Carnavalet Museum. In gratitude for his service, in 1923 a square was laid out in Paris, bearing his name, which now holds an archaeological collection of long vanished monuments of the past and astonishing antique stone relics.

The Musée Picasso is an art gallery located in the Hôtel Salé in rue de Thorigny, in the Marais district of Paris. The hôtel particulier that houses the collection was built between 1656 and 1659 for Pierre Aubert. The architect was Jean Boullier from Bourges. It is considered to be one of the finest historic houses in the Marais.

The Musée de l’Histoire de France was a state museum of French history operated by the Archives Nationales. It occupied two buildings: the Hôtel de Soubise and the Hôtel de Rohan.

The Musée des Arts et Métiers (Museum of Arts and Crafts) is an industrial design museum in Paris that houses the collection of the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers (National Conservatory of Arts and Industry). It was founded in 1794 as a repository for the preservation of scientific instruments and inventions

Passage de Retz is an avant-garde gallery open since 1994 that hosts a series of impressive exhibitions by local and international artists. There are collections of Japanese textiles, American abstract expressionist paintings, contemporary Haitian paintings, and much more.
