“Wonderful but a little sad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

Catch the Metro here and walk across Parc Monceau to this unprepossessing mansion.
Inside are lovely furnishings and china etc from another era. The kitchen is worth a trip on its own.
It is sad because the last of the family was deported by the Nazis and the family line died out.

“Beautiful 18th century Parisian house with objets d'art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

This is a wonderful little museum worth visiting, right next to Parc Monceau. There isn't a lot of tourists, which allows for more time to appreciate the mansion and the objets d'art contained within. The audio guide was very helpful in explaining the story of the Camondos, and how the mansion and all the collections came to be. This was one of my favorite attractions in my trip to Paris!

“One of the most beutiful houses I saw”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

Musee Nissim de Camondo is one of the most beautiful houses I saw, and a wonderful little museum.
For the record: I visited there in May 2013 and I cannot put this date as there is no option for this, regrettably I forgot to write before.
The museum was the private residence of a ridiculously rich Jewish banker who relocated to Paris from Istanbul at the end of the 18th century. The house contains a staggering collection of china, paintings, furniture, and was left to the city after his son was killed in action in WWI, fighting the Germans. It is a little of the beaten track of tourists and I strongly recommend it to those of you who come to Paris second, third, etc. times, like I do, every year.

“Jewel in Parc Monceau”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

This is the house of a rich banker, who was a refined art collector. A must visit. Will give you good idea of what a bourgois home was in the late 1800s in Paris.

“Musee Nissim”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Absolutely fantastic a hidden gem in Paris. The house, laid out as an 18th Century mansion was left to the State and is full of 18th Century objets d'art in their original state. Each room is a treasure trove. The Musee is surrounded by a dark troubling history of the 20th Centurey and should be a must for all Art lovers.
