“Little jewel of a museum.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

This is an old mansion, built to show case the private collection of the couple who lived there. It is a lovely museum, and not overwhelming as the larger ones can be, but also with impressive art.

“Just amazing - a true Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

An elegant large town house with the most amazing collection of art works. Small enough to really appreciate everything. The audio guide was clear and informative and most surprisingly free. A absolute must for appreciating culture and architecture.

“Excellent museum off the beaten path”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

We loved this museum as it was not too crowded in late July compared to other museums. The home is stunning and the history of the couple who built the home and acquired the collection is impressive. The artwork is not my personal favorite style, but I still found the museum worthwhile. We probably will not go back, but it was a worthwhile excursion without the heavy crowds found at other museums.

“Impressive and interesting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

This is the former home of a wealthy couple who was fortunate enough to travel the world, enjoy it and collect art as they pleased. Walking up to it, it didn't seem that grand from the outside, but it is quite impressive on the inside to see and imagine how the wealthy would have lived years ago - including a ballroom that could collapse its walls and hold up to 1,000 people. I felt like it gave a lot of insight to life in Paris at the time and could imagine what it would have been like. The audio guide (included with admission) was insightful.

“Who Knew?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

We never knew/read about this "home" despite numerous trips to Paris - it was great to discover a place that it not on the radar and well worth a visit. It will take you back to time when grand living was at one of its heights ~ Nellie Jacquemart (portraitist) and her husband, Edouard Andre' (banker) collected art and antiquities with an open checkbook! The audio guide is quite helpful and it is included in your admission - we did not go into the restaurant but it was packed - the home itself was all to a small group of us who had arrived after the lunch hour. Don't miss this museum/home.
