this is more than a museum, it is an unparalled voyage into the world of great riches, great taste and great passion for collecting. it is also a reminder of the tragic fate of the Jews in Europe. M De Camondo had amassed a huge fortune as a banker to the Sublime Porte and had a mansion built in the... More

I'd recommend visiting this after doing a little reading, particularly the section in Edmund White's Le Flaneur about the museum and the tragic Camondo family. An amazing preserved mansion tucked away behind a beautiful park. For my individual taste, the ornate and fussy furniture and decoration from the late 18th century isn't my favourite. But that's not the point. Taken... More

The museum is in the home of a Monsieur Camondo who was a rich Jewish banker. The home and its furnishings are amazing and fitting of someone very rich. M. Camondo lost his son in WWI, and then his remaining family members were killed by the Nazis in the Holocaust. That is the sad part of the visit, but the... More

A beautiful museum with a tragic end of its owners. Really worth to see the interiors and worth to use the audio guide while visiting.

not free but worth the entrance fee, with much to see. Displayed as a lived in mansion, rather than as a museum.

The "Hôtel Camondo", home of the "Camondo Family", at Earl Moïse Camondo's will, was donated to the government of France and transformed into a small museum. Being small and not so well known by most tourists, visiting it may be a rewarding and pleasant experience. The "Hôtel Camondo", designed and patterned upon the "Petit Trianon Palace", in Versailles, was built... More

Behind the Notre Dame there is the bridge to the Ile Saint-Louis. It is a small island with charming shops, inviting restaurants, and, most importantly, BERTILLON, which is on the first street to your right after you cross the bridge. Some restaurants will have Bertillon as a selection on their desserts menu. The kiosk which sells the ice cream and... More

Loved this small museum. Felt s if the owners had just walked out. Beautiful architecture. The family had acquired an amazing painting collection. It was sad to hear that all descendants were kileed during WWII.

We stayed in the 8th this time around and discovered this gem of a museum. A gorgeous and well presented historical museum, Nissim de Camondo tells the story of the Camondo family who were collectors of 18th century art and furniture. The audio tour is well designed and this is worth a visit -- Metro stop is Villiers or Monceau... More
