This wasn't really what I was expecting. I exprected to see more istory about the people who are living in the home in this type of museum. I was hoping it was more like going hroug Sissy's home in Vienna, Austria, but it was not. This was more like a private art and furniture collection. It was nice to see... More

This is one of the loveliest museums in all of Paris. Well worth a visit. The whole place is beautifully laid out and a joy to look at.

A little off the beaten track, this museum reminded me of the Morgan House in New York- a private home-turned-museum it gives you an opportunity to see a beautiful, personal space while other rooms are reserved for exhibits. It sits on a lovely courtyard which has a wonderful restaurant. A must see!

My family toured this museum on July 14, Bastille Day as we wanted to avoid the Louvre which had free admission and was therefore, swamped. Although admission cost 12 Euros, it was well worth it. There was no line for admission that afternoon, we could see the building and art work at a leisurely pace without throngs of tourists, and... More

Another musee privee that makes one feel a bit privileged, if only for a few hours. The patisserie after viewing the museum were the highlight for me, I have to admit. Try a slice of reapberry or pistache marron cake. YUM!

This museum is quite unique for Paris. It is a manageable size and includes a decorative arts collection and fine arts collection that parallels it. The audio guide is excellent. It gives a summary of each of the 17 rooms and then gives you the option to hear more about individual pieces. The fine arts pieces really are by some... More

This is one of our favourite museums. Unusual exhibitions set in a beautiful house on the Boulevard Haussmann. The cafe is well worth a visit too.

I have done All the big museums and wanted something smaller, without the crowds. This was it. Beautiful house, with amazing art and architecture. Some of the rooms with their paitntings on ceiling and gold trimming reminded me of rooms at Versailles. The audio guide in English was excellent. As others have said the cafe, was in a beautiful room... More

After a recommendation, we walked to this gorgeous mansion. The art work in there is stunning,everything including, uccelo, boticelli, mantegna van dyke, rembrandt and much more. The rooms are exquisite and beautifully presented. There is a fabulous fresco at the top of the stairs which takes your breath away with its freshness. If that isn't enough there is a fabulous...

A wonderful experience right from the moment we reached the cool covered entrance and escaped the fierce sun of a Parisian heatwave for a moment. It's a wonderful museum in which you can really imagine people having lived and hosted guests. Top notch art and good explanations in all the rooms and just large enough to fill an afternoon beautifully... More
