Musée Nissim de Camondo

The Musée Nissim de Camondo, at 63 rue de Monceau in Paris, is housed in a mansion that once belonged to Count Moïse de Camondo (1860-1935), who bequeathed it to the Union Centrale des Arts Décoratifs in memory of his son. The museum, which replicates the interior of an eighteenth-century home, displays the remarkable pieces acquired by this passionate collector throughout his lifetime, including French eighteenth-century furniture, paintings, carpets, tapestries, porcelain and gold and silver wares.
