A gem of a museum

What a great insight into the lives of the elite of Paris but such a sad family story. Incredible collection of antiques and artwork!

One man's realization of his dream to create a late 18th century mansion filled with period furnishings. Bordering the Parc Monceau, it's a perfect afternoon to be followed (or preceded) by a picnic in the Par.

with beautiful views on the Parc Monceau, this place was the Paris residence of the Camondo family who suffered a tragic destiny. The house has very fine examples of XVIIIth century furniture, paintings and china. A pure jewel

This is easily one of my favorite museums in Paris, hidden in a beautiful mansion next to Parc Monceau (which you should visit after a tour of the museum). It houses an impressive collection of 18th century art and furniture, which is displayed as it was when the de Camondo family lived there. In the three times I have visited,... More

This was a house filled with antiques and interesting rooms. Close to Parc Monceau if you are in the area.

This is a museum that seems to have attracted little notice and thus many fewer visitors. But it is a story of an elegant family.WWII.

You don't like traditional museum where you walk kilometres in galleries, jumping from one painting to the next one ? Visit the Camondo house. It is indeed a house that was built to hold a fantastic art collection. You can wonder in the house, from the kitchen to the ball room discovering amazing art works. A must do in Paris... More

This well-preserved mansion speaks volumes about the family who lived here, their taste in art and their ingenuity in adopting modern conveniences. Their story is ultimately tragic and reminded me of the book, The Hare with the Amber Eyes. I am grateful to the people who have conserved this family's hopes and dreams long after they have died.

This was a surprise visit on a rainy day. The museum houses a wonderful collection of furniture, art and sculptures from the 18 and 1900's. The house is set out as it was including the great kitchens. Well worth a visit even if you don't think it's what you would like . You may be surprised.

This is one of my favorite places in France and the story of the family is both tragic and compelling. It makes a wonderful combination with a walk in the Parc Monceau and the Jaquemart-Andre Museum nearby. Even better you can have a simple lunch at the Jaquemart-Andre too.
