Nissim Camondo Museum (Musée Nissim De Camondo) Tours
Read MoreShow Less
More portal to the past than typical museum, Paris’ Nissim Camondo Museum (Musée Nissim De Camondo) is home to one of the world’s best collections of 18th-century decorative arts. Comte Moise, the father of World War I soldier Nissim de Camondo, donated the family's legendary collection to France in honor of his fallen son, and the museum opened in 1936.
The museum is housed in the Hotel Camondo, not a hotel but a private home built in 1911 in the style of the Petit Trianon at Versailles. Comte Moise was a Parisian banker with a penchant for 18th-century art and furniture, and his home was a showcase for his extensive collection. Today the Nissim Camondo Museum is kept just as it was when he lived there, and three floors are open to visitors. It's a fascinating tour of both life in the early 20th century and 18th-century French design. Discounted entry is included with the Paris Pass.
