The Camondo museum was closed so we went to this museum in the same area. Very interesting with a splendid cafe in the former dining room. Interesting couple assembled the artwork. The conservatory is a gem.

Fed up with the crowds at the Louvre? Then visit this little museum which is in fact a stately home with all the trimmings of the Grande Epoque. It is a step back into time, where you can experience what it was like to be a wealthy and privileged Parisian.

The building alone is worth the entrance price, an exquisite creation by people who loved beautiful and cultured things and had the money and taste to back it up. The elegant residence (called a "hotel" in French - different use of the word) is also an art gallery, which over the years consistently brings expositions of the highest quality. I would come here to see anything. Advance tickets are available from FNAC, but they typically only save a 20 minute wait. One wing of the building has an exceptional cafe. We often visit the museum first thing Saturday or Sunday morning, then catch the dining room when it opens at 11 and there is no wait. We have brunch and enjoy the decor and quiet elegance. Jacquemart-Andre deserves to be better known to tourists, but there are a lot of great museums in Paris and they can't all be top-ten.

it's small, intimate, charming. I just love imagining myself living there as the original owners had.

We enjoyed seeing artwork displayed in the museum in the way that the owners of the household would have appreciated it themselves - makes it much easier to take in each piece of art than in a setting such as the Louvre. Entry is slightly above average in cost but comes with an audioguide, so we felt it was reasonable overall. The size of this collection is also quite nice - you feel as though you have time to take in each piece without being rushed, and the Jacquemart's art selections are so nice that it doesn't seem as though you're missing out by not going to a larger museum. Good selection of early renaissance through maybe ~1750s, lots of emphasis on Venetian art but also some Flemish and English portraits, Egyptian art, a couple Botticelli's. The architecture and interior design are beautiful. Very nice.
