If you like beautiful architecture paintings, and tapestries, this is the place for you. Your ticket includes a free audio guide with very well-done and succinct explanations. This is one of those museums that is lesser known, even to the Parisians. It is also associated with another great museum, the Museum of the Decorative Arts near the Louvre. If you... More

Walking around this beautiful house and listening to the commentary on the free audio guide, you get an insight into the life of the rich bourgeoisie who enjoyed a fantastic life in Paris. The kitchen took my breath away, it is almost similar to the one in Downton Abbey especially where the staff ate their meals. Each room gives details... More

what´s interesting in this museum, besides the art and furniture, is the history of the Camondo family. The visit is almost like a movie you´re watching, while Moise de camondo builds his manor and how his family is sadly desroyed. You can easily imagine what life was like for wealthy families back in the beginning of the 20th century.

Not too far from the Arc d'Triumph on a side street. Absolutely delightful mansion and artwork, worth seeking out. Asian Museum of Paris nearby also worth a look if you like Asian Art, especially Tang horses, and Song ladies. These mansion museums are all exquisite and under-publicized.

Prior to a short 4 day Winter visit to Paris we contacted a Trinity College professor who has taught Art History at the Trinity College Paris campus for years. Having been to Paris several times before, we had seen all of the major museums. Our friend recommended this gem and said it is frequently missed by the usual tourist crowd.... More

It was well-presented, but I found the I don't have much interest in furnishings from the era Comondo collected. Loved seeing the kitchen, staff dining room compared to the guest dining room.

One of three museums within about 500m, the Nissim de Camondo is, to me, the best in terms of the overall experience. It is (was) a family home, like the other two (Musée Cernuschi, Musée Jaquemart-Andre), but this one has a more of a 'lived-in' feel, in that you see bathrooms, kitchens and get more of a feel for how...

This is a splendid house built in the early 20th century but furnished in a style of 200 years earlier. It's not like going to a museum but visiting the private home of a very rich family. A family you get to know as there is so much personal stuff there. Along the way you learn the family's history which... More

A glimpse into a wealthy Parisian's home and art. Part of the museum pass and located off the beaten path a bit but still in Paris proper. Very interesting furnishings and the kitchen was particularly fun to see as it is all as it was.
