This superb house museum showcases exceptional 18th century French furniture and fine art. Beautifully furnished rooms give a sense of luxury living amidst the finest furnishings possible. It's an unhurried visit much like the Frick in NYC. Highly recommended for those who love decorating, design and history. A moving story of the house museum as well.

The Musée Nissim de Camondo is an elegant house museum of French decorative arts located in the Hôtel Camondo, 63, rue de Monceau, at the edge of the Parc Monceau, in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. Well worth a visit, away from the bustling crowds of the bigger museums in Paris. Stroll into the Park Monceau afterwards.

A family home from the times when technological innovations, like an elevator, were a novelty. I was not that impressed with the artwork hung on the walls, perhaps because I had just visited Musee Marmottan which is close by, but the building itself was fabulous. Most impressive were the winding marble staircase and the huge kitchen with its enormous stove... More

The rooms are filled with beautiful and perfectly preserved pieces of furniture. The De Camondo men who owned this house, lived in the years around 1900 but were apparently in love with the atmosphere of the previous century, so they collected furniture, tapestry etc. of the 18-th century. At the same time, they used modern (for 1900) appliances in the... More

This private museum has a good collection of furniture and art set in a 19th Century mansion in one of Paris' poshest neighborhoods. Interesting family history. Definitely worth a visit. Sweet and charming.

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
