We really enjoyed this museum and the family history contained therein. It was wonderful to be able to view such a personal collection which was brought together by such an interesting man.

This is the house of Nissim de Camondo, an early 20th century business man who built a house in the vein of 18th century style. The museum - the house - is wonderful. For Disney fans, the guys who drew Ratatouille invented the Gusteau's restaurant kitchen based on Nissim de Camondo's kitchen. Just in case you were looking for a... More

I love porcelain and family stories. This is a wonderful house seeped in history (that doesn't end well...). Love the bathrooms! Feel how this family lived! Right behind the Park Monceau. Well worth a visit! Definitely take the head set, it makes the whole house open up to you! (if you don't take the headset, might as well skip the... More

I liked the history of this place...impressive decorations. Not as grand as I thought it would be, however, if you have time to read about all the items collected in home,you can learn lots about this period in history

This museum was located on a quiet street behind the Parc. Moncean in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. Nissim who served in the french army and died in the World War I was the only son of Moise de Camondo, a banker and owner of this mansion. After Nissim’s death, the grieving father donated this property and his collections to... More

our visit to this museum felt as if we had been invited into a private home. The dining room was set, family pictures displayed, and the kitchen ready for dinner prep. As visitors tour the home and collected art works the family's story from the 1800s through part of the 1900s was unfolded. The conclusion was a view into the... More

I come back here every time I'm in Paris. Gorgeous little museum with beautiful pieces and a good feel for the family that inhabited it (especially if you watch the video). Highly recommend it. It is near the Parc Monceau which is an added benefit.

i came across Musee de Camondo by chance, when I was in the area. Cost of visit is €9,00. Do not miss this. In the 8th, where wealth and prestige resides and is evident, this home is something else. Packed with family acquisitions of décor and furniture, artworks, porcelain collection, it is quite magnificent. Nissim Camondo and his wife owned... More
