We went for lunch while in Paris, we had the special as we were there a bit late and it was all that they had to offer other than pastries. I was terribly disappointed by the quiche; here I was in Paris and my own homemade quiche far surpasses it. Two of our three desserts were not worth the calories,... More

This is a very interesting and "must see" place. The opulence is breathtaking and it gives you an opportunity to imagine how life was for this amazing couple. Thank you for donating your art to the city for all of us to enjoy.

This lovely relatively small museum was a terrific experience of the life style of the fabulously rich in 1900s Paris. The house was fabulous. The art was OK, nothing outstanding. Well worth a visit if you want a quiet break. You get a big discount on the price if you have saved your ticket from the Orsay and Orangerie.

We went for the Fragonard exhibit, which we learned about in one of the visitor's centers. Turns out it's a really lovely house with a fantastic art collection. The house feels like people lived there; it's a great snapshot of upscale Parisian life at the time. The art is surprising and diverse - I didn't expect to see Bottecelli and... More

The museum is located in the lovely house off Boulevard Haussman of Edouard and Nelie Andre. The house itself is great and it shows their collection of art and furniture from the mid-19th century. He was a rich banker and she was an artist and both loved collecting. Some of the works on display are outstanding but many are quite... More

We went to see Watteau & Fragonard special exhibit, but the standing museum and its history are even more exciting and interesting. The Cafe is worth a visit, too - just expect to pay € 9 for a piece of pear tart ... it's worth it!

We spent 2+ hours at Musee Jacquemart-Andre recently, and were thrilled that we visited. A lovely museum that gives you a sense of the passion for collecting, and the dedication to art that this fascinating couple had. The art is superb and the home in which it is installed is fascinating. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, which was capped off... More

This is an old mansion, built to show case the private collection of the couple who lived there. It is a lovely museum, and not overwhelming as the larger ones can be, but also with impressive art.

An elegant large town house with the most amazing collection of art works. Small enough to really appreciate everything. The audio guide was clear and informative and most surprisingly free. A absolute must for appreciating culture and architecture.
