    well worth a visit
    A wonderful building and personal collection, like the Frick and the Courtauld. Worth getting the audio guide to explain more of the background. A very interesting and well curated Bellini exhibition. Also a really good cafe - great food, service, setting eand value.

    Amazing mansion
    A beautifuly furnished mansion with art works dating back to 1600-1700. Marble staircase and beatifully carved furniture and decorations. We spent about two hours there and I would definately return. They also host temporal collections and we saw Italian artist Belini. There is an adorable bistro/cafe at the end of the tour. The desserts they serve there are delicious.

    A great museum of a manageable size
    This is just an exquisite collection showcasing some of the finest examples of French decor and Baroque art (Tiepolo, Nattier, etc.). And the building itself is an architectural marvel. The special exhibition (Giovanni Bellini) was incredible, too. I didn't get the audioguide so I'm not sure I maxed out my experience, but please believe me when I say that this is a beautiful museum with a first-rate art collection. Plus, it's a very manageable size (especially after visiting the Louvre, lol). Oh, and the restaurant looks incredibly popular. There was a very long line so we didn't get to try it, but it was beautifully decorated and must be very good.

    Art Lovers Dream
    No, it's not the Louvre. It is the incredible curation of an art loving couples dream of creating a magnificent space to view classical paintings. We missed the Bellini exhibition by a day, a few of their pieces had gone off with the exhibition, and still were not disappointed as the permanent collection particularly the Italian Renaissance on the second floor are worth the visit. Go soon as they're about to close for renovations!

    A must visit to a hidden gem!
    A hidden gem. I have been to Paris dozens of times but never heard of this small museum. Located not far from l'Arc de Triomphe on the Haussmann Avenue. It has a beautiful interior, with a very interesting fresco (mural) presenting a visit of Henri III to Venice on his way to take the throne of France. There are also special exhibitions. when we were there it was of paintings by Giovanni Bellini. Outstanding!! And plan for a lunch in the period decorated cafeteria. Excellent!

    finest private collection of art works in Paris
    The museum was the residence of Édouard André and Nélie Jacquemart to display the art they collected during their lives. Beautiful collection of art pieces and architecture. Typical atmosphere of a large nineteenth-century residence. And has a restaurant THE CAFÉ JACQUEMART-ANDRÉ which is located in the former residence dinning room that is full of day light and garden view.

    Not the typical Paris museum
    I really enjoyed my visit! It is a house tour that is a little off the beaten path of the Paris museums. Not far from Arc de Triomphe. Interesting architectural details and a perhaps slightly oddball but interesting collection of pieces.

This was the only museum I went to while in Paris that wasn't included in the Museum Pass, but that's not the reason I've given it a 1 rating. The staff weren't particularly welcoming. It's basically a wealthy person's townhouse maintained as it was. The art on display is mainly rococo though there are a few rooms with old masters. It's quite large so could take a while to get around, but it wouldn't be top of my list if you've got limited time.

Dear Sir, Thank you for your comment. However, could you tell me the date of your visit because the Jacquemart-André museum has been closed since August 1, 2023 for one year until September 2024, for restoration work. Sincerely.

We selected this museum for its collection but also because we had high expectations re. the building. Both came out. The collection is heavily French oriented while you can sense mr. Jacquemod’s positive inclination to Italian art. The building offers you a sequence of rooms with painted or carved ceilings, an amazing staircase to the floor and in general a grandeur that doesn’t exist anymore (anyone can have his m/f/other feelings about that; for me it provides a background for understanding the art). Nice people at the reception and the shop.

This is an elegant mansion with a fine collection of art. The current exhibition of Giovanni Bellini's art was fascinating. He might not be one of the greatest artists of his time, but he played an important part in painting in Venice ca 1500. There is a very informative video.
