Discovering Musée Nissim de Camondo

Venture into the elegant realm of Musée Nissim de Camondo, a treasure trove of French decorative arts and 18th-century furniture. Here, every artifact whispers tales from a luxurious past, enveloping visitors in an atmosphere of timeless grace.

A Glimpse into a Bygone Era

As you journey through the museum, you'll be enchanted by the immersive historical narrative. Step into a different era, marveling at the detailed grandeur etched in every room - a perfect memento of Parisian high society.

The design was modeled after the elegant decadence of Versailles, but behind the traditional panels are a range of high-tech, modern living spaces, and gadgetry including kitchens, offices, and bathrooms.

The Musée Nissim de Camondo is fully preserved in its original condition and gives a unique insight into a modern aristocratic home.

There is an impressive collection of art on display including the following: gilt bronze clocks and wall clocks, barometers, chandeliers, mounted vases adorning cabinets, boiseries, tableware, porcelain and silver dinner services, sculptures and paintings that reflect the collector's sensibilities, and many works by eminent artists.

Moïse de Camondo intended to pass the mansion and art collection down in his family, but his son was killed in an air battle during world war I. Moïse de Camondo then decided to bequeath his property to the "Arts Décoratifs", in memory of his son.
