This museum was the house of a rich banker in the early 1900's who made it his aim in life to fill his home with all manner of antiques from the 1600 and 1700's. It wouldn't be my taste in furnishings, but it has resulted in a very interesting museum. A must if you are interested in furniture and antiques.... More

Tragic family story. But a proof of what man can achieve. The perfectionism of the art and architecture is very inspiring.

Lovely townhouse near the Parc Monceau. Furnished with beautiful art. Every room is interesting and the place is never crowded. A gift to the French nation after the family's son was killed in WWI. Easily worth 90 minutes.

The Musee Nissim de Calombo is very much worth a visit. A bit like Jacquemart Andre and the latter is a bit better but Nissim is very good. Grand home, lots of very good art, furniture and China. Plus you learn a lot about the family who lived there. A sad story but good to learn about.

This exquisitely furnished mansion bears witness to a very poignant story and the sad story of the de Camondo family will remain with you for a very long time. I love the kitchen and the staff dining area !

It is hard to believe that this house was only built in 1911; and opened to the public in 1935. I loved the Sevres porcelain, and the Russian silver dinner service. It is a terrific experience to be able to enjoy the history and life style of a place like this. There is nothing like this in Australia. Climbing the... More

What I find interesting is that those who have given this museum the lowest (Terrible) rating are all French. So have we here in France become difficult to please? As for me who lives in Paris, I can not give this house a higher rating than 3. I will explain. The fate of the son and daughter of the man... More

this is more than a museum, it is an unparalled voyage into the world of great riches, great taste and great passion for collecting. it is also a reminder of the tragic fate of the Jews in Europe. M De Camondo had amassed a huge fortune as a banker to the Sublime Porte and had a mansion built in the... More
