Specialty Museum Museum

Your visit to the mansion includes five sections, each with its own ambiance and works of art. The State Apartments reflect their fascination with the French school of painting and 18th century decorative art. The informal Apartments are decorated in a refined style, while the Private Apartments on the ground floor give the museum the feel of a family home. The Winter Garden shows off the art of entertaining, while the Italian Museum features sculpture, as well as Florentine and Venetian galleries.

  • I love the museums that were someone's gracious home and this is one of them. The artwork and decors is original to the mansion. It even has a lovely cafe for lunch inside....BUT....you might want to ...  more »
  • My last visit to this wonderful mansion dates back to December 2016. But I go there at least once year since 15 years. With always the same pleasure... Me was received at the box office has always been friendly and professional. And yet there are world - including visitors anxious, nervous, even sometimes aggressive and rude. It seems to me that the ticket - to a private museum - is relatively reasonable, given the fact that he gives every time access to the permanent collections and temporary exhibitions. Except my mistake, the (very well done) audioguide was free but has become paying! That's too bad... Since its renovation, site entirely regained its original charm. The apartments of the Jacquemart-André family rooms are absolutely stunning. The visit makes me every time thinking about one of the Frick collection in New York. A lot of refinement and wealth. An eclectic art collection, which may surprise. But quality paintings/sculptures, it's undeniable. Of course, as this is not a museum but a mansion, all is originally planned to host the world as much of the world. This is the only downside. Because in the rooms for temporary exhibitions, except in the morning and - more - end of the day, we're scrambling sometimes a little, a lot, too. To admire the paintings, approaching, absorb, it takes / just take time, suspend, not to hurry and wait until the crowd disperses a bit. It is worth! I will return for sure in December during my next stay in Paris.

  • Today this Museum and I was very impressed. The architecture of the House is amazing, very tasteful. The garden is wonderful to sit and enjoy the House. Inside the House you can't even describe. All very beautiful, natural light, high ceilings, impresses the internal stairs is a work on the side. The works of art are very beautiful and there is a bit of everything, but everything of quality and taste great. Not to be missed!

  • I went to the restaurant there and it was fantastic, the place is absolutely gorgeous, You would not believe there can be such a quiet place in Paris. The Restaurant is gorgeous, the waitresses were charming and very professional, really worth a try ! They do not take reservations so you better go there early for lunch, We went there at 12:30 and had no problem to sit, around 13:15 it was packed and it stayed this way until 14:00. Great food, with very fresh ingredients. I had the plat du jour (Kebabs of Scallops and Scampi) and a fantastic apple pie... But I am pretty sure all the desserts are fantastic...
  • The brunch was delicious and not expensive for the quantity of food it comes with. Amazing desserts, views and very nice staff. Mandatory stop when in Paris.
  • Finally a turn of the century upper class home- moving walls, spectacular staircase, and best of all a chance to see what it is like to eat good food in an elegant setting. Recommend by a Parisian as a way to avoid crowds.
  • An amazing surprise in the middle of the 8th arrondissement in Paris. The place is beautiful and calm. The museum has interesting expositions. In opposite of some Parisian museums, it is not crowded of tourists.
  • A surprisingly rewarding visit. Paintings were of course superb but the house itself was the highlight of the visit.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
