Nice town house of the XIXth inspired by Versailles Trianon and built to house the collection of XVIIIth century furniture of Moise de Camondo. (Read the book of P. Assouline, le dernier des Camondo).
The museum is twinned with the musée des arts décoratifs (in the Louvre palace). Take the opportunity of visiting both.

What a lovely house just off a Paris Street, backing on to a park. The house was owned by a "Count" who lived there with his son and daughter. A very sad story... the son was killed in world war 1 and the daughter and her husband and children were killed in the Nazi war camps in WW2.

After the death of his son the Count turned the house into a Museum in his memory. As he had no one to leave the house to, he decided to hand it to the French Nation. This is well worth a visit. Lovely collections of decorative art, interesting bathrooms. The kitchens are amazing.

Please see my review of Musee Jacquemart-Andre for suggestions. Camondo as I recall has less art but more history…the family (jewish in the 20th century) had a tragic ending, hardly a big surprise. That history and their home has been thankfully preserved for us to wander around, take a peek, and perhaps think a little about the impermanence of wealth and position, etc.
