This museum is actually an old elegant Parisien home. The former Owners were of a wealthy Jewish family. The collection of art was their passion. This is an opportunity to see a delightful impressive home of an old-style with excellent artwork.

Seek out this lovely, quiet, exquisite little museum near the Parc Monceau for a look at how the 1% lived before the catastrophe of World War 2 and the Holocaust. The tourist crowds are off spilling their ice cream and knocking each other with their selfie sticks somewhere else; this is the opposite experience. It makes you feel as if... More

It was not hard to imagine the rich and fulfilling life the Camondo family had during their best of times. The way the home and art has been preserved offers a rare and accurate snapshot of how a rich Parisian family lived at the time of our great great grandparents. Our tour of their home was captivating.

When you finish the visit you have a good idea of what could have been the life in the 19th. If you are coming for the first time in Paris go there. On top of that it'st not too far from shopping area: printemps, gallérie Fayette

Wonderful way to learn about the Jews in France and how they lived prior to WWII. And how naive they were

The mansion is on the Park Monceau and affords the opportunity to stroll this fine park. The mansion is beautiful and the story of its creation merges inextricably with the contents and presentation. The collection was compiled at the end of 19th and beginning of 20th. It is a repository of fine 18th century French furniture, applied arts, clocks, fine... More

Compelling and tragic family story, home with 18th century art and furniture turned museum. Free audio guide. Specific antiques with their own number for more information. Incredible public access, not just peeking into doors over velvet ropes. Not crowded. Part of museum Pass. Would go again to learn more about antiques.

This beautiful decorative arts museum is housed in the family townhouse of the collector adjacent to the parc monceau. The family's history is as compelling as the stunning 18th century collection.

I decided to visit museums on this trip I'd not visited on past trips and glad I did this one. This was originally a private house of a Jewish man of Turkish descent whose father had moved to France. He had a passion for collecting 17th century antiques and wanted to build a home near the Parc Monceau which would... More

What a wonderful hidden treasure. A splendid family home which gives you a good idea how the rich and famous used to live. I loved the audio guide which is complementary. Do visit the wonderful park which is just around the corner. I can't recommend this place highly enough.
