“European Opulence in the 19th Century”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

According to the self-guided audio tour, this mansion owned by the Jacquemarts in the 19th century, was described as an upper middle-class mansion. I would like to see how the upper class lived. This couple had no children and loved art. They took trips annually and collected from all over Europe. The mansion, rooms, decor and unbelievable art were amazing. This is a wonderful half-day visit with tea and sweets at the end.

“Great small well done museum”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

Excellent museum that was uncrowded with people but filled with Art.

Beautiful house with a wonderful collection that you could admire without being pushed and shoved. No wait to get in.

Takes a little over an hour at a fast pace, more if you want to take a good look.

Very nice tea room if you want to take a break.

“One of five best in Paris”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

An excellent museum. Be sure to rent the audio guide, it makes all the difference. Beautiful building, the rooms were designed to accommodate the art! A couple with no kids, lots of money and great interest and taste in art put it together and it's up there with my five favourites.

“Great private art collection in the mansion”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Just a lovely visit where there are not lines and hordes of people like the Louvre. With free coat check and lockers, one could fully enjoy the elegant decorated rooms with tapestries and paintings of the 18th century besides a great collection of Italian 15th century sculptures and paintings, even a couple of Botticelli, without being hampered by raincoat, umbrella, etc. This place has the most amazing staircase. A free audio guide is also provided which was very informative and even had music to set the mood of the period. Takes about 2 hours and cost 12euro per person. There is a cafe decorated with tapestries.
