Great introduction to how a very successful french banker of the 19th century lived. The mansion is wonderful and has the finest staircase that I have seen. This alone is worth the admission (12 Euro). But let's not forget the art work. A wonderful collection including Van Dykes and Rembrants - and a fine Italian collection that really should not be missed. If you go early there is no crowd and we finished up with lunch in the cafe, which, though a bit of "ladies that lunch" crowd was a lot of fun.

I would place this museum second on my must see museums in Paris (after the d'Orsay. Interesting & not too big.

Édouard André, one of the richest bankers in France was a well known art collector. When he married a society painter, Nélie Jacquemart, their life became devoted to acquiring a great collection, with their house being renovated to accommodate the burgeoning number of works. The house itself is fascinating, with apartments, galleries, an internal winter garden, but also intimate rooms that were lived in by the couple (when they were back from collecting).
When we visited there was an exhibition "Watteau to Fragonard" (until 31 July 2014) which follows the 'fête galante' movement which flourished in the early 18th century. The style, showing beautiful people flirting in a variety of Arcadian landscapes, is of its time, but fits the surroundings. (Although perhaps the Andrés being seriously into Renaissance Italy might have thought it rather frivolous).
Good restaurant, and a free audio tour (for the house - the exhibition audio tour costs 3 euros).

I had never heard of this museum until today. I went based on previous Trip Advisor reviews and was very glad I did. It 's a very impressive building with magnificent works of art. What makes it so much more enjoyable is the excellent audio guide that provides all of the background you need for what you are experiencing. A very enjoyable time.
