Other tripadvisors have described in much more eloquent terms the wonderful art and artifacts that are contained in this museum. Truly a miracle that the mansion and its furnishings have remained virtually intact since the mansion was donated to the French state, prior to WWII. The generosity of the family is extraordinary – and the relatively poor condition of the family tomb in the Montmartre Cemetery is a sad counterpoint to the beauty of the mansion: it is worth seeing both to fully appreciate the tragic story of this highly influential family. What is noteworthy as well, for us "tripadvisors", is that Moise de Camondo was an active "tripadvisor"! A group of 100 men - “Club de Cent” - including Camondo, reviewed hotels and restaurants during their travels and they published an annual guide about the cuisine, service and management of hotels and restaurants they had frequented.that year. And the Camondo mansion was the site of the annual sumptuous luncheons of this club from 1930 to 1933. So, in a sense, this club represents a historical link to tripadvisor.com, but with a drastically diminished membership. If only the luncheons were to continue in modern times...!

This wonderful museum and previous home is tucked away in a near suburban. It’s easily accessible via Metro and a 10 minute ride from the heart of Paris. Magnificent home with an impressive collection of decorative arts and furnishings. You can leisurely stroll through the salons at your own pace. It’s off the beaten path so most tourist skip the wonderful museum. There is also a lovely park nearby and restaurants.

Having visited Paris many times, I’ve ticked off the major sights multiple times. Asking the hotel concierge for a recommendation or something different he immediately recommended this. It’s a hidden treasure, and definitely should be on your list of sights to see. And it’s very quiet, so you really get to appreciate the museum to its fullest.

Staff were immediately welcoming. Entry at €9 included an audio guide. Some guides are too detailed - this one was spot on with a good base level of coverage in each room and lots of additional recordings if you wanted to know more.

The house and its collection is stunning. It was kindly donated to the state in the 1930s/1940s, the owners only son (and natural heir) having died in WW1.

A very special musee indeed. The building is impressive, but the story is even more-so. You will be pleasantly surprised.

We have been to Paris many times and enjoy the strolling. We also look for new places to visit in the city. This was no disappointment. A charming house with a very interesting story. We would definitely recommend it.
