Marvelous Parisian mansion built by Sephardic Jewish financiers during the Belle Epoque. The mansion and all its opulent collections of antique furnishings, art and decor were donated to the people of France. Sadly the final family members were murdered in Auschwitz.

This well kept private Palace of a rich jewish family, whose history ended very tragically, is a wonderful collection of furniture, art and interiors of passed times.

This is one of the greatest art treasures in Paris. You will see not only a beautiful home, a great facade, spectacular interiors, or splendid view over Parc Monceau. You will witness history in every corner; that of the family and their sufferings and of the art collection whether paintings, furnishings, porcelain, bas-reliefs, Chinese vases, and crystal chandeliers. The nearest... More

Hard to imagine this place was set up as a museum from the word go. Very impressive place, great decorative arts and overwhelming story of the Camondos.

He was a passionate collector of French furniture, art objects and paintings and built a private mansion in which to house these treasures and for his family to live. His son Nissim died in battle during WW1. As a consequence, Moise de Camondo bequeathed his property... More

Little known by most tourists this museum somewhat hidden away is an absolute gem. Originally a grandiose private residence for a rather rich individual who became an avid collector it offers an interesting insight how the rich and powerful lived in those days. Very well worth a visit.

The museum is on Parc Monceau, which itself is worth a visit. The home and it furnishings are gorgeous. The audio guide is very helpful and doesn't cost extra. I felt I went back in time and could imagine living there directly on the park. The kitchen is very interesting. If you go, please don't miss it.

Actually a tragic story of an immigrant to Bel Epoche Paris via Italy from Turkey, who makes good, who collects that most French of French things, 17th and 18th century decorative arts and ceramics, loses one child to war (shot down in World War I) the other to aristocratic pretentions and then the Nazis and so is "forced" to leave...
