This was truly one of the best museums I have ever been to! What a gem in the heart of Paris. It is truly a must see. Make time to stay and eat in the cafe. What a lovely experience!

A private 19th century mansion, built to house an impressive art collection. Wonderfully preserved rooms furnished as they were when the owners lived here. Excellent restaurant, shop and special exhibits. Plan 2 hours and take your time. A refreshing alternative to the mobs in the more celebrated museums.

There are a number of private homes in Paris that have been transformed into museums. Some are horrid, filled with awful paintings and little more than a testimony to the ego of the former owner. At the other extreme is the Musee Jacquemart-Andre, which is filled with art and antiques well worth a couple of visits.

The art collection, the sense of her adventures as she collected sculptures and paintings;the respect he gave her;the entertaining they must have done....it is all there. Terrific gift shop and.... have lunch in the restaurant there ,... More

A lovely palace where a fantastic love story started, she was there to paint his portrait. Then, they got married and a life of travel resulted in a fantastic collection. It makes you feel special just been there. Une collection privee magnifique!

A wonderful collection of paintings and sculptures spanning about three centuries, set in a beautiful grande house. The audio tour is well worth having too, as it gives an insight into the lifestyle of the art-loving owners. The tea rooms are great too!

If you go there, you can learn about three things: 1. the art collection 2. the architecture of the great building itself 3. the lifestyle of the 19th century Make sure you use the provided WiFi to download the museum’s app to your smartphone. Unlike most museum apps this one is very good and works as an audio guide and... More

Love the intimate setting and many personal touches of this residence turn gallery-museum. Nice way to spent a part of the day without the lineups and crowds of other locations. Good collection of paintings and excellent exhibits! Nice place for lunch inside.
