The Albert Khan was not very well organized (may be they had to many pictures to choose from). It was difficult to follow and because of that it became less interesting. The garden, however, was beautifully laid out. It's well worth a visit, although not as spectacular as we had expected.

Not a house, like Hotel Nissim de Comondo, but a very well laid out garden with museum about the life and work of Albert Khan. Right by the metro at the end of line 10 (Boulogne-Porte St Cloud) this is a fascinating exposition on a man who made millions at the turn of the 19/20th century from South African gold... More

The flowers, the japanese style garden, and always very interesting exhibitions in the museum. I regret that the tea-room is always closed each time I go there.

Great place to spend a peaceful hour or so wandering through the lovely gardens. Particularly liked the Japanese section with its koi carp. The museum itself has some fascinating photos from around the world taken mostly in the 1920s and takes probably another good 45 minutes. Easy to get to as right next to the end stop on Metro Line...

In the museum, you can see lots of pictures that Albert Kahn took all around the world. The garden is very lovely and peaceful, you can sit and relax between different kind of trees and plants. I would recommend it any time of the year.

Lovers of Japanese Gardens should not skip this little gem, hidden away near the end of the Boulogne Billancort Metro Line 10. An interesting little Musee and beautiful grounds will reward your visit.

This museum is a real hidden gem! There aren't that many tourists yet, but it is worth a detour for sure! The French, English and especially the Japanese gardens are wonderful. The museum has an interesting collection of historic pictures and movies: they give a lively insight into the period during and after the First World War. Just to be... More

It's been raining all week so when a sprinkle of sunshine appeared we set out to walk in the garden for our daughter's birthday......yes everything the reviewers say is true....however don't even think of eating or drinking anything here. We took a packet of biscuits and two drinks and were sitting in the rose garden when a surly and aggressive... More

Located at the end of metro line 10, this is off the beaten tourist path. Wonderful collection of gardens -- Japanese, French,English, a Japanese village -- a great place to walk. The museum is an entree into the life and passions of Albert-Kahn. A fascinating man and an incredible collection of photographs.
