The history of the Camondo family is not a happy one, unfortunately. But interesting and emblematic for the France of the last century. Wonderful house, wonderful art collection.

Trying to discover things outside large museums. This was a great find. Understanding how life was for a wealthy family with a sad outcome. Beautiful furnishings of a real family. Worth a visit for sure.

It is not Paris' most exciting house museum but granted when I visited not all of the rooms where open to the public and after having gone to Jacquemart-Andre it was hard to be impressed

One of the Paris hidden gems. This is the "hotel particulier" in which the last heir of the Camondo used to live before being deported by the nazis. This is a house full of emotion portraying the interiors of a rich family at the turn of the 20th century. This is the Era so well described by Proust.

Wanted to see this museum because the Camando family lived near the Ephrussi family, of the 'Hare with the Amber Eyes", another wealthy Jewish family. The 18th century objects, not always my interest were beautiful and exquisite. The family story, fascinating. A wonderful morning

Discover it quite by accident because it was raining. It is a great building to visit even if you are not really interested in Chinese art. Really worth a visit.

despite the sad history of the de Camondo family this museum is well worth the visit - it is a stunning collection amid a beautiful house. the museum was not over crowded with visitors so you are able to take in the feel of the home.

This museum is a lot smaller than others like the Louvre or the Musee d'Orsay, but it's still a great one to see. The museum entrance almost blends in with the surrounding area and there was a lot less traffic around here (at least on the day of my visit), so you'll be visiting a high quality museum without having...

If you like house museums, e.g. Musée Jacquemart-André, then this more modest (relatively) house built in 1910-12 to house Comte Moïse de Camondo's collection of 18th c decorative arts is well worth a visit. The house is pretty much as it was when Moïse died in 1936 and left it to the state. One thing special is that you can... More
