History of a Collection, a Home, a Collector
Essentially featuring the decorative arts of the 18th Century, the collection of Moise de Camondo still occupies the building designed to house it and the collector’s family. This visit delves into the two periods united here under one roof: the Ancien Régime of the count’s collection, and the modern bourgeois lifestyle of Camondo and his family in Paris of the 1920s.
Guided Tour

All the Colours of Marble
Cherry Red? Brèche d’Alep? Sarrancolin? Brèche Violette? Antique Green? These are only some of the remarkable colours and textures of marble used in a number of 18th Century pieces. This tour of the history of marble will teach you to identify, observe and appreciate the many varieties made famous by the Château de Versailles.
Guided Tour

In the Company of Pierre Godefin, Count Moïse de Camondo’s Butler
This visit winds through the service quarters and reception rooms of the Musée Nissim de Camondo, as visitors follow in the footsteps of Pierre Godefin as he prepares for a reception that took place Tuesday the 3rd of June 1930. The butler announces the menu for the luncheon to the kitchen, then pulls the public along to help get everything ready for the event. A step back in time and an exceptional moment shared by the group.
