Guided Tour: MUSEUM / MANSION CAMONDO
Moïse de Camondo, was a wealthy Jewish financier at the turn of the 20th century, and had his own private mansion built near the Parc Monceau for the special purpose of housing his exceptional collection of 18th-century furniture, tapestries, porcelaine and silverware. Because he died childless, Moïse bequeathed his house to the Union des Arts décoratifs in 1935, on the condition that it would remain such as it was at the time of his death. By visiting the house from the kitchens down all the way up to the bathrooms, as well as seeing the collection, we shall tread in the footsteps of its owner, the last one of the Camondos, a family with a tragic fate.
Entrance fee not included.
