Nothing is left from the family of Jewish bankers de Camondo except this exquisite museum. It is a great experience to visit this small museum house .

A visit that you will not forget, nor regret. Next to one of the most beautiful parks of Paris, Parc Monceau, this beautiful house is furnished and decorated exquisitely. The story behind this amazing grand mansion becoming a museum is tragic - the heir was killed in WW1 and the last members of the family died in Auschwitz. With the... More

What a pleasant afternoon I spent here - dreamily moving from one room to the next.... imagining this Mansion and the people who lived there surrounded by all that art and furniture. Please do visit it if you get the time - and get carried away into the past.....

A family home with all original furnishing and a fabulous art collection, unchanged and not degraded by time.

Steeped in history, we were provided with headphones that gave an interesting and in depth history of this gentleman's home. Call into Richard's cafe enroute for first class service and great value food and drink.

The Nissim de Camondo is included on the multi-day Museum Pass. Unlike other museums on the Pass, the audio guide is free. You can follow the suggested tour on the audio guide or just walk around on your own as most exhibits have a number that can be keyed into the unit. The main reason for visiting this mansion is...

We like visiting places with stories. As you follow through every artifact and room in the house, it tells the story of the family before and during the war. It is a sad reality that not all survived and this family was not of those who managed to survive the atrocities. Would recommend, if you want to see the home... More

This museum was set up by the family after WW! and has two interests. Some beautiful art and a fascinating look at how the elite lived in the early 20th century. Family has an interesting and tragic history. Also the father built the house and some of the design is amazing for the time - a good example is the... More

Beautiful home! This place is worth seeing for the decor alone. I love that the audio guide is included in the price. Lots of info about pieces, but also about the family. The family story is just as interesting as the house itself. I loved seeing the scullery kitchen. It felt like I was on the Downton Abby set

Very interesting display of life in Paris in the early 1900's. This museum captures the essence of living in Paris as a wealthy expatriate during the 1900's. Discussion of the political climate and it's impact on the family that occupied the home. Not in the 'museum area' - easily accessed using the metro.
