I loved a lot of things about this house, which truly enables you to imagine living in affluent 18th c Paris, but my absolute favorite was the porcelain dish service, over 200 pieces, each hand painted with an array of different birds. The new restaurant next door, “Camando,” is very nice with a lovely garden space.

......…of French decorative arts are in countries other than France, particular Britain and America. The Camondo, on the other hand, shows some of the best in France of the 18thC, in furniture, ormolu, porcelains Oriental and French, textiles and objects of everyday grand-luxe, in an admittedly 19thC setting, but brilliantly evoking an earlier period, with charming views over the garden to the parc Monceau.

The quality is astounding and the juxtaposition of periods, styles, materials and techniques is both instructive and aesthetically pleasing, so much better than the cold, over-lit sterility of the Louvre or the musée des arts Decoratif. ‘Spot-the-Masterpiece’ is an easy game here and kids of all ages will love it.

This museum is housed in a mansion built in the early 1900's. Interestingly, it had modern bathrooms & kitchen facilities but the design of the house was based on classical design from the 18th century. M. Camondo was a wealthy banker and collector of magnificent furniture & accessories who built the house to showcase his collections of Louis XV. & Louis XVI items. Motto be missed; never a crowd. This s what the interiors of Versailles SHOULD look like!

I have to admit that I had not heard of this museum prior to a recent organised visit to Paris.
It is well worth a visit and is easily served by metro stations. It was a family home of a family of Turkish bankers who moved to Paris,It has a marvellous collection of treasures collected by member states of the family.
Our guide was very enthusiastic. Well worth a visit

I loved the 18th century style architecture. The 18th century antiques get a little boring and heavy. I wouldn't bother with a guide tour.
