How to be lost in XIX century beauty

Astonishing beauty and richness of a lost family. A great experience, as walking in a Proust book... Great house- museum and... sumptous restaurant inside!

This is an amazing house design complete with a no less amazing personal art collection all within the context of a tragic human story. Visit N de C in the morning and visit Jaquemart -Andre after lunch to complete the experience.

While it has a very sad history there are two beautiful spots for me. Walking up the stairs looking at this amazing light in the foyer and the kitchen which is reminiscent of Downton Abbey.

As you walk down Blvd Saint Michel you walk past what looks like an old medieval ruin and you are right it is one. What you need to do is turn the corner and go into the medieval museum that is there. there are absolutely amazing pieces of art in this museum some even from the first century. The real... More

This is a very nice museum but not outstanding. If you like 18th century decor as much as the owner did, you will greatly enjoy this museum. There is an impeccable collection of 18th century furnishings, dishes, decorative art. The poignant, tragic story of the family made me feel more connected to the house. That said, this is a tier...

Wanted to visit for so long and finally made it today, this museum was the highlight of my latest Paris visit, and it's something I'd highly recommend to anyone interested in having a first hand experience on how the life of one of Paris' wealthiest families used to be about a 100 years ago. A true gem!

I was staying at a nearby hotel and trying to find something local to fill my time while my husband worked. I was simply walking by and went in. This was a really beautiful and interseting museum. The home feels the same as when the family lived there. The gardens and original furnishings are beautiful. The family photos are especially... More

For those who love 18th century furniture, paintings and architecture, this house is a must. The owner, who came from a very wealthy Jewish banking family, had a keen eye and plenty of francs to indulge it. The house was specifically constructed to house the wood panels, paintings, furniture and objects that he meticulously collected. Sadly for him, his beloved... More

What a wonderful museum that allowed us to learn how a family lived in Paris. On the Boulevard Hausman we found it be accident and were very glad we did.

This was interesting and informative, but not spectacular. I did enjoy the view of Parisian high end living during this period of time. There was some interesting art and interesting furniture. Even though I was expecting more (from previous TA reviews) I was very glad we went and would still recommend doing this. An interesting way to get here is... More
