This is a home owned by a wealthy man who decided to accumulate furniture, paintings, tapestries, and decorative objects from the 1700s. Each room is loaded with authentic articles which he bought over the years. This is different from other museums in the quality and quantity of objects. The visit includes an audio guide. My wife is an antique collector and we spent three hours in this museum. It is one of a kind. The Park Monceau next door is also interesting.

Make sure you take the audio guide to get the full benefit of learning of this important family, the mansions they built and the treasures they collected. And then the tragic end.

This is a very interesting location. Not only does it hold a collection of exquisite art items but it also tells the story of the family who created the collection and cared for it. I particularly liked the kitchen area on the ground floor where some 15 servants were based.

My mother and I found the Camondo mansion to be a favorite of ours this summer! Gorgeous, gorgeous home and grounds bordering the exquisite Parc Monceau, but tragic and horrifying end to the Camondo family. The help at the front desk was very nice and helpful. We would have been so disappointed to miss this special museum that serves as a tribute to Parisian history and society as well as to a remarkable Parisian family.

Located on the border of the beautiful Parc Monceau, this grand mansion dating to 1911-1914, inspired by the architecture of le Petit Trianon is no doubt a must for Louis XVI decorative arts aficionados, but is also delight for those who simply appreciate the passion of collecting and decorating in a pure style. An excellent audio guide leads through this magnificent house, reflecting on furnishings as well as poignant personal family details, not just upstairs, decorated with an educated eye for the past, but also downstairs boasting a 1912 state of the art kitchen.
