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 ! :)

There were few other visitors the morning I went which made for a very relaxed visit. The audio guide in English is excellent giving just the right amount on information. Lots of interesting objects and furniture and a poignant family history to discover. Lovely views over the Parc Monceau from the main rooms.

Beautiful home full of art treasures located on the Parc Monceau, it is a truly hidden gem. We were there during New Years and every museum had long, long lines. No line here because it is not well known. Pretty neighborhood full of cafes surrounding it.

This is my favorite place in Paris. It was a private home that has been turned into a museum of the owners life. Exceptional interiors that look like it was when the family was living there. A wonderful place to drift back into time.

The private home of a Sephardic Jewish family who made a fortune in banking. The head of the family amassed an enormous collection of 18th century artwork, furniture etc in the family mansion. A place where time has stood still after the death the heir in combat in WWII and his sister and her children in Auschwitz.

Okay, Paris is the most beautiful city in the world - or it was, until the coming of the present administration - but there are still wonderful surprises and hidden treasures to discover. One is the Musée Nissim Camondo, cheek by jowl with the expansively delightful Park Monceau; and all in the elegant eighth arrondissement on rue de Monceau. Essentially... More

Walking through this museum was a nice experience. The room with the library is my favorite and I also liked the decorated vases found throughout the place. Very nice.

A step back into a later 1800's "hotel particulier" or mansion which remains frozen to 1935 when it was willed to the French state as a museum. Beautifully decorated in authentic period furniture, this is a beautiful building. Strongly suggest watching the video presentation with the family story; watch it to the shocking end. You will be deeply touched.

Thank MChrisTee
