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!

Best experience ever at the best price I had a wonderful experience with the Paris Pass. I visited all the places that I wanted. I skip all the lines and the price was very reasonable. I wll highly recommend the Paris Pass to any traveler. The hop in and hop off bus was wonderful too. I also used the Paris train and all of these atractions were included in the Paris Pass.

Best purchase for first time to Paris! I took my daughter to Paris for a graduation gift. The Paris pass was a lifesaver. We used it everyday, and was accepted for all public transportation. I would highly recommend it.
