Please join us for a guided visit (in English) of 

the beautiful Musée Nissim de Camondo




The Musée Nissim de Camondo, dedicated to French decorative art from the second half of the eighteenth century, displays some of the finest furniture and objects from the reigns of Louis XV and Louis XVI: chairs from the Turkish Room of Louis XVI’s sister Madame Elisabeth; carpets from the Savonnerie factory, commissioned for the Louvre’s Grande Galerie; pieces from the silver service presented by Catherine the Great to her lover, Prince Orlov; a roll-top desk by the cabinetmaker Jean-François Oeben…

These masterpieces were assembled by Moïse de Camondo (Istanbul, 1860-Paris, 1935), who commissioned the architect René Sergent (1865-1927) to build a mansion in the style of the Petit Trianon at Versailles, in which he could house his collections.

The resulting mansion, built in 1911-1914, was perfectly adapted to the comfort standards of the early twentieth century. Fully preserved in its original condition, it provides unique insight into the running of a large private mansion in the Plaine Monceau neighborhood.
