One of the most impressive "Hôtel Particulier" in Paris

A slice of Parisian life from the turn of the century. This is a period townhouse with all it's original fittings. Originally owned by a banking family who came from Turkey their history was tragic.

shows the way of life of the rich people, not so long ago.. only a hundred years ago, and their ubrupt closure caused by the deportation of the owners and their murder by the nazis .... Set in a lovely place in Paris and reflects the fine arts and the way of life of art lovers like Mouise de commondo...... More

Whilst it is a nice house for sure, I should have seen it before going to the Palais Opera! Quite underwhelming after that... but still a nice place to visit to get a true sense for how the few lived in Paris in the glory days. Good collection of things.

this is luxe living of the 19th century, all the furniture and ambience that was French upper class living - a Jew ish family who had trouble in the war, so there is a haunting sense about the place too - but the fittings and lay out are stunning; they have exhibitions too, but the main collection is well worth...

A friend recommended a visit to the Musee Nissim de Camondo just off the Parc Monceau. The house was built in 1912 by a Jewish banker, Moises de Camondo, who was born in Istanbul. The house has been pretty much fully preserved as it was in the 1930s. The entire family died tragically by 1935 so the mansion was donated... More

Set in a beautiful family mansion overlooking the "most beautiful park in Paris" (according to Rick Steves' guidebook), it's an intact family collection of 19th century decorative arts & furnishing, set in amazing rooms with its private garden & park views. Free audio guides provides extensive information on the family's history & objects in the collection. Top floor were the... More

A very beautiful and well maintained home along with a fascinating yet tragic story. The entire street, rue Monceau, has an equally interesting story. It doesn't receive too much attention which makes for a very comfortable visit compared to the Louvre or Versailles. I suppose the treatment of the family has become an embarrassment for the country.

Perfect to see how the rich people of the early 1900s lived. Amazing antiques and one of a kind furniture from ages past.... mostly the 18th century. The art is perfect and plentiful. The French people were fortunate to receive this gift. When we visited the museum was not at all crowded and we fully enjoyed the descriptions with the... More

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
