Nissim de Camondo Museum

  • Count Moïse de Camondo and his son, between glory and tragedies.
  • A luxurious bourgeois home preserved exactly how it was when inhabited at the beginning of the 20th century.
  • A sumptuous collection of furniture from the studios of the most renowned cabinetmakers and carpenters under Louis XV and Louis XVI.
Once the private collection of Moïse de Camondo, heir to a line of bankers of Turkish origin living in Paris, the Nissim de Camondo museum recalls a time when the Parisian bourgeoisie lived for art. The private mansion – modeled on the Petit Trianon in Versailles – was built in 1912 and houses a wonderful collection of mostly 18th-century French furniture, decorative objects, and woodwork. The museum was opened to the public in 1935, after Moïse bequeathed his collection to the French state in memory of his son.
