The 8th arrondissement of Paris is home to one of the most notable and opulent public Museums in France. The Jacquemart-Andre Museum showcases the extensive and valuable art collections of husband and wife, Nelie Jacquemart and Edouard Andre. The museum has been open to the public for more than nine decades. The grand setting and breath-taking pieces of art present more than enough reason to pay a visit to the museum.
Wealthy art enthusiast Edouard Andre spent quite a bit of his fortune on amassing an impressive art collection. He married a portrait painter by the name of Nelie Jacquemart and the couple shared the same insatiable appetite for acquiring priceless pieces of art. The couple frequently travelled to Italy in order to buy valuable pieces of art. After the death of Edouard Andre in 1894, Nelie Jacquemart completed their collection with some Oriental works of art and then, on her death, donated the mansion, their private residence, the museum and the art therein to the Institut de France. In doing so, they have given a great gift to the public and forever immortalizing their names and passion for the arts. The Jacquemart-Andre Museum displays the sum of their individual collections consisted of paintings, sculptures and antique furnishings.
During a trip to the Museum you will want to cover the five main parts. The informal apartments, the state apartments, the private apartments, the winter garden as well as the Italian museum form the 5 main parts of the Jacquemart-Andre Museum. Needless to say, visitors should not expect to quickly pop in and out of this museum. Make sure that you allocate an adequate amount of time in your itinerary to this excursion in order to truly absorb all the fine pieces of art and architecture on this site.

We love this little jewel of a museum and returned to re-examine the mideval Italian art collection after our weeks in Florence, Siena and Venice. As an extra treat, an exhibit of Mary Cassatt - small but we'll curated - made our visit even better.

A lovely way to spend an afternoon, even if you aren't usually interested in antique houses. I usually hate audioguides, but the free audio guide here is excellent and makes the experience massively better. The restaurant is nice too, but not cheap!

Always visit when in Paris. Love the building, the museum and the storyline. Amazing to think its still more or less as it was planned. Restaurant is super and dining on the terrace is a real treat in summer. It's where the French eat! Simple but beatifully served. A little elegance in a busy world.
