“One of five best in Paris”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

An excellent museum. Be sure to rent the audio guide, it makes all the difference. Beautiful building, the rooms were designed to accommodate the art! A couple with no kids, lots of money and great interest and taste in art put it together and it's up there with my five favourites.

“Great private art collection in the mansion”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

Just a lovely visit where there are not lines and hordes of people like the Louvre. With free coat check and lockers, one could fully enjoy the elegant decorated rooms with tapestries and paintings of the 18th century besides a great collection of Italian 15th century sculptures and paintings, even a couple of Botticelli, without being hampered by raincoat, umbrella, etc. This place has the most amazing staircase. A free audio guide is also provided which was very informative and even had music to set the mood of the period. Takes about 2 hours and cost 12euro per person. There is a cafe decorated with tapestries.

“At least it wasn't crowded”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Didn't want to jostle with the crowds at D'Orsay and opted to visit this mansion/museum. Interesting history about this aristocratic couple, their mansion and they opulent art collection. It's smalish and you can complete the tour in 1-2 hours, depending on how deep you go with your free audioguide. Art pieces are mainly classical and from the 18th and 17th century , The design features of the home itself are also considered art highlights

They also have a temporary collection which costs 3 euros more, which i didn't go too

“A Paris Hidden Treasure”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Does viewing art with thousands tourists jockeying to see pieces that are hung on plain museum walls frustrate you? Is yes, then this is the place to go to. View 18th & 19th Century art including Rembrandt, van Dyck, Bellini and Fragonard, as these artists had envisioned, on the walls of the homes of wealthy art patrons. See how the owners hung these master pieces in their late 19th century mansion in Paris. The architecture of this home - with its retracting music room walls and gracefully twisting marble staircase - make this museum a must see.

Plan time to have breakfast, brunch or a digestive in the museum cafe, which happens to be in the mansions' dining room. The tea selection is top notch and the pastries are so good you will struggle eat just one. We had to have a second blueberry tart.
