Our guide, Olivier, from Coloratour, recommended this one. Sweet little private mansion on le Parc Manceau. Everything just in place as it was. Interesting, wealthy family with a sad twist at the end.

This a gorgeous house built specially to house a collection built up over a lifetime. Sadly, the heir was killed in WW1 and the rest of the family died or was deported in WW2, so the wonderful house and contents were left to the state on condition they be left as planned. We loved the china (made for a favourite... More

When the 2 other museums we wanted to go to had lines round the block we went here instead. It's perfect for that kind of option. Sort of a slice-of-life of this fabulously wealthy man who, ultimately had a rather sad life. You get a voyeuristic look at his whole mansion, from over-the-top public rooms to the servants' kitchen (which,... More

So glad we visited here as it's somewhat off the beaten path given all of the other sights in Paris. Near the small but pretty Parc Monceau, the house and its contents are remarkable. The items that the Camando family accumulated - furniture, antiques, artwork - are truly outstanding and beautiful. But, in the end, there was much tragedy too... More

an absolute must for all the lovers of French culture. Off the beaten track but absolutely worth a visit. The tragic destiny of the Comondo family makes the whole experience even more meaningful and poignant. A stroll through Park Monceau is a fantastic prelude to the museum itself. A 20-th century hotel particulier with all the contemporary mod cons well... More

There is layer upon layer of history within this house. It is NOT just about the beautiful architecture and stunning furniture and furnishings contained within. The history of this house is very sad. It was built in the early 20th century, very close to, and around the same time as the house owned by another well known Jewish banking family... More

This is an extremely well presented museum documenting the life of an interesting banker from the 19th century and his family into the early 20th century. The residence (now museum) is presented in essence as the owner left it, with superb collections of art and furnishings most of which is on display to see. The self guided tour (with English... More

We visited this museum on a recent trip to Paris. We were told by friends that it was a must to visit and they were so right. It was one of the highlights of our trip. The scale of the mansion is very human and you almost expect the owners to appear and offer a glass of wine. It is... More

Delightful home and furnishings, with nice collections. Perfectly preserved as it was in the 1930's. Well worth the side trip.

We had a 6 day museum pass and this was definitely one of the best. It is right next door to the Parc Marceau which is a lovely park to visit before or after. Elegant private home filled with 18th century french furnishings and art. Great silver dinner service and Buffon porcelain service. If you can't make it to Versailles... More
