Feel like youre in your own mansion

This museum is never crowded and is absolutely a joy to get to roam around. Sometimes you can pretend it is your own private home to enjoy. Beautiful staircase!

This perfectly preserved mansion is a must see for those who appreciate great architecture and history. The design of the home, which maximizes views from every room with a unique floorplan and floor to ceiling windows, is fantastic. Fascinating to see the thought put into the serving areas, including chef's office, kitchen and butler's pantry. Lovely gardens and a short... More

I read about this museum and found the story of the Camondo family intriguing. The mansion, especially the kitchen and dining areas were of particular interest to me. However, through the excellent audio guide, I learned more about the family. It is a story that is inspiring, powerful and tragic. You will remember your visit and want to learn more.... More

There are so many things to see in Paris, it's easy to overlook past pleasures. I ran across this photo from our visit last fall, and it brought back fond memories. A beautiful house, a lovely collection of art and artifacts from the 18th century.

This lovely house was built by Moise de Camondo just before WWI to house his collection of 18th century art, tapestries, furniture etc. On his death it was bequeathed to the Musee des Arts Decoratifs in memory of his only son. The house has been left pretty much as it was and you get a glimpse of how life was... More

True gem in an elegant part of the city. The highlight of my trip. For history and 18th century antiques lovers. You don't feel like in a museum. The only thing I didnt like was the documentary about the turbulent family history that was for French audience only, without subtitles.

There's 2 floors to see. Lots of decoration and detail to admire. It's easy to imagine yourself living amidst all the beauty. Sadly, you can't stay forever.

I'm so pleased I managed to visit this wonderful museum. It's not large by any means, but full of beautiful and interesting works of art, and their free audio guide is packed with interesting information. Seeing the upstairs and downstairs reminded me a little of Downton Abbey ! :)
