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.

Finally a turn of the century upper class home- moving walls, spectacular staircase, and best of all a chance to see what it is like to eat good food in an elegant setting. Recommend by a Parisian as a way to avoid crowds.

An amazing surprise in the middle of the 8th arrondissement in Paris. The place is beautiful and calm. The museum has interesting expositions. In opposite of some Parisian museums, it is not crowded of tourists.

Hidden gem in Paris. The collection of art here is exquisite. Walking around the mansion offers you a glimpse into the life of a wealthy French family. There was an exhibition of Rembrandt also when we visited showcasing some of his early works. Definitely recommend visiting this museum.

Astounding museum. Bit of a smaller museum, but the pieces that are featured are of very high quality. This attracts quite a crowd, so beware of lines forming. The staff does a pretty good job at keeping the flow of visitors going, so it never really feels stuffy or crowded inside. Visited during their Rembrandt exhibit which floored me. Do try to visit that one!
