Sumptuous mansion form a previous century with a wonderful collection of art and objects from famous artists. This was a surprise highlight from our trip to Paris.

This is the first time we visited this restaurant with a friend from the UK and had great expectations of both quality and service. we were so wrong, the waiting staff were very rude, could not be less attentive and virtually through the food at you. The staff dress very smart and are are very trendy, they have little concept... More

At this wonderful museum, close your eyes and pretend that you have been invited to one of the many dazzling soirées held at this mansion! Each room is wonderful and descriptions given in English are very helpful. The cafe which is in the original dining room is a must if only for just a coffee and another chance to daydream.... More

This museum, previously a privately owned collection, is mainly attended for the temporary exhibitions - many of theme definitely worthwhile. But the permanent collection is great too - mainly Italian or French paintings and sculptures in a beautiful palace. Not that many visitors, so one can visit in peace - when there is no blockbuster exhibition...

The art collection is impressive mostly because it was obtained privately. But the architecture and decorations are spectacular. ; especially considering this was someone's home.

To really understand the way of life of the super rich people of their time, it is very important to be able to visit their private homes. Jacquemart-Andre makes no exception to this rule. The staircase and the themed rooms resembling those in the palaces of the kings of the same period help understanding the way the aristocrats lived and... More

Musee Jacquemart-Andre along with Musee Nissim de Camondo were my favourite sights in Paris. This one is even more big and luxurious than Nissim, but the latter pays more attention into preserving the house with its furniture as they were when it was inhabited. The entrance is 12 euro and the reduced ticket is 10 with an audioguide included. The... More

A friend told me to go to this house/museum. This isn't my thing. I am sure it is great if you love old furniture, drapes, sweeping staircases, palaces, and lots of portraits in oil

Having been to Paris several times, we looked for something new this year. Musee Jacquemart-Andre was fantastic. This is a 19th century home of standing that was bequeathed to the government including all its beautiful art works. It is in pristine condition and is managed very well. We did not stay for the fabulous looking cafe but the entire home... More

A nice look at how the other half lived in a faded age. Some very good pieces of art and objects d'art housed in a still beautiful building. Worth a visit, expect to spend a couple of hours maximum. Note: Not included with Paris museum card, admission is a little steep at 12.50 Euros/person.
