Amazing House

Interesting museum of what upper class Parisians could live like around the time of the great war. A sad story about what happened to the family.

Before going to the museum, read up on the Nissim family history. It's fascinating. The art, antiques, furnishings are outstanding.

I visited there with a Museum pass. It was no so crowded compared to the famous museums, but I highly recommend this place. The 'house' is gorgeous!

Beautiful "museum" which is actually still the home the way the family left it in the WWII. Moving memories. Incredible token of time gone by of wealthy family in Paris history.

A hidden gem with a beautiful collection of art, furniture and silver. Nicely off the tourist track. There's a hint of tragedy here - the family's son was killed in the First World War and you can imagine that they'd gladly trade in all their beautiful treasures just to have him back.

While much of the mansion is typical French antique furniture the kitchen would make Julia Child's heart sing. The story of the Jewish owners is quite compelling.

Another hidden jewel of Paris. One of not many Jewish heritage sites. The house is absolutely gorgeous, beautiful pieces of art. The story of De Comondo family is also amazing.

A real museum at a convenient scale. One could get a glimpse of the lifestyle of an wealthy, early 20 th century household. Regardless of all artefacts on display, I was intrigued by the House' s 'Can Cook Anything/ any time concept kitchen. Staff lunch room looks similar to Gossford Park. Good value for the 7.50 euros admittance fee.

Never a crowd at this museum, though it is certainly worth visiting. The history of the de Camondo family is one we should all take to heart. Wealth, influence and prestige are not sufficient to protect oneself from evil. The private home of the de Camondos is full of beautiful things and the most modern appliances of the time. Those...
