  • Very beautiful Mansion at the end of the XIX to the sublime art collections (Italy, XVIII °...). The exhibition very informative Caravaggio (rivalry between artists, style, context,...) Recommended reservation or arrive early.

  • A bit disappointing. This genius of the painting has no exposure it deserves. Too small rooms, poor lighting. A few rare major works.

  • We visited the Museum and her attire in each piece. The audio guide is a good option for those who want more details on the history of the place as well as works and present furniture. We then continued our tour for the exhibition on Caravaggio. Indeed, there are few works, but we knew. However the exhibition rooms were really very small. 10 people in a room and you lose the appeal of the paintings on display. Should not be claustrophobic! Photos for the Caravaggio exhibition are prohibited, it's understandable but I am surprised that the paintings are not protected and several people were paintings, and no security personnel was present in some parts. It's infuriating, the incivility of the visitors and the small size of the pieces you push to get out fast... We are really disappointed I recommend anyway because the paintings are beautiful

  • Gorgeous museum, and just the right size. We were lucky enough to be in Paris for the Caravaggio Temporary Exhibit at the museum, which was stunning. But even without that exhibit, the permanent collection is gorgeous and the rooms of the house are sumptuously and beautifully decorated. Even the café and gift shop are luxurious and special. One of my favorite Paris museums!
  • A wonderful artistic experience in a rather small building. You get everything: architecture, paintings, statues, tapestry in a wonderful environment. If you have a free day, it's a must. Beyond the intrinsic beauty and value of the exhibits you come to realise the generosity of these people who put everything they gathered at the disposition of the grand public to enjoy and be educated.
  • Beautiful private museum with a great interior from the late 19th century on the most elegant boulevards. I saw a very interesting exhibition with Caravaggio paintings from his Roman period.
  • Most awesome place to visit: great architecture, tapestries, paintings, staircase and so much more. Plus, even when every other place in Paris is packed with obnoxious tourists, you have the place almost to yourself. Plus - bonus, lovely cafe next door.
  • Very elegant and beautiful for a short visit. wonderful cafe afterward. Perfect for lunch date
