The extraordinarily sumptuous Musée Nissim de Camondo is located in a private home that was commissioned and lived in by the fantastically rich Parisian, Moïse de Camondo.

Moïse de Camondo was a banker and a passionate collector of French furniture and objects d’art from 18th century France. In 1911, he hired architect René Sergent to build him a private mansion which would be worthy of his art collection and suitable for his family.

The design was modelled 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 which 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. You can see all of this fine artwork with the Paris Pass sightseeing card!

Made us see new attractions in Paris I have been to Paris many times. First time I bought Paris Pass - but not the last. Besides the convinience in transportation, the guide book gave good inspiration and information to new expirienzes in this wonderful City !
Mette Juul Rasmussen from Denmark

It was a great decision to buy the Paris Pass and I recommend it to others. The Paris Pass was very useful to our enjoyment of Paris. We used it daily and went to some places that we probably wouldn't have chosen or known about if we had not had it. Paying for all of this in advance freed us from having to constantly purchase tickets, exchange money and carry a lot of cash. We felt it was a good value and so easy to use. My advice, purchase a Paris Pass to enhance your visit.
