This is an usual house museum established by a wealthy Turkish Jewish family that emigrated to Paris in the 19th cent. Fascinating story, great collection and exquisite setting overlooking Parc Monceau yet ending tragically for the family in WWII. Just getting to Parc Monceau and seeing the house's relationship w/ that 19th century planned residential open space is rewarding.

This home was built in the 19th century and is furnished with 18th century furniture. This is well worth a visit and is approached across a quiet park.

What a generous gift to a Nation, only to be met with the extermination of a Family. Like the Phipps Museum in New York City, Winterthur in Wilmington,Delaware, The BArnes in Philadelphia,The Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art in N.Y.C.and countless other structures donated to their Nations by philanthropic people, The Comondo Family has left us with their home and a view into a life that has past. This is a must see place ,and think for a moment that the unspeakble happened in the most sophistocated place in the world. NEVER AGAIN ,we must all say.

The story of the De Camondo family is quite tragic in more than one way. Mouris de Camondo had a passion for beautiful art and good food and collected both. I happened to see the movie at the end but think it would be more informative to see it at the begining of the tour.
Make sure you enjoy the nearby park as well
