Fascinating view of de Camondo's époque beautifully preserved, a haven and a bit off the beaten track, not too many visitors. To understand the history more, read the tragic story of the de Camondo family in the house, also read 'The Hare with Amber Eyes' first and go to see the film 'The Woman in Gold' to understand how rich...

This was a nice little find, remarkable mostly for the variety and consistency of the designs and contents of the rooms. I hadn't picked up that the look and feel of the house was deliberately set in a different period than when it was created, While the pictures were a bit so-so, the overall effect was impressive and had a...

This bourgeois house was owned by wealthy jews who unfortunately did not escapte the nazi horror. It s very moving to visit the house of this couple who decorated their wonderful house with so much taste . A beautiful home and a lesson for every one , money cannot always save you from barbary.

A 10- or 15-minute walk from Musee Jacquemart-Andre. Beautiful home and furnishings. Very good acoustiguide tour. Well worth a visit for those interested in 18th century furnishings.

A 20th Century building built to recreate an 18th Century town house and filled with 18th century art and furniture. The house was bequeathed to the nation after the death of the owner's son in the first world war. This is a lovely private house that is off the beaten track and consequently is very quiet, making the visit even... More

I always enjoy restored homes and this was no exception. It is a very interesting small museum and a nice respite from the huge crowds at attractions like the Louvre and Eiffel Tower. We spent a lovely quiet afternoon having lunch in the area, visiting this museum and walking through Parc Monceau.

The museum is a beautiful example of a fine mansion in Paris. In addition to the beautiful surroundings, you remember the pain of the wealthy Jewish owners.

The beautifully restored residence is a remarkable way to see how the rich lived in the early 20th century. The audio tour gives you insight into the owner's artistic and architectural and technological passions. You get the chance to see his art and furniture collections as well as the innovative kitchen and bathrooms. It is also shows how well integrated... More

Moise de Camondo bequeathed his mansion with 18th century French furniture and art objects to the French govt. and named it for his son Nissim who died in WW I. What interested me most was not the art objects- but the history of this tragic Jewish family. The plaques at the entrance to the museum motivated me to find out... More
