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.

Jacquemart-Andre Museum Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating Very grand historic house with many richly decorated rooms and some very notable paintings - including a couple by Rembrandt and Van Dyck. Also a number of very impressive 18th c tapestries. Bellini exhibition was very good and I enjoyed the main house even more.

5 Star Rating You must book your tickets online! I arrived without a ticket and waited 40 mins to purchase one and enter the museum. Don’t make my mistake. Really charming museum, filled with art. They especially loved Italian art from the renaissance. I spent 2.5 hours here. There was a lovely Botticelli temp exhibition at the time too. It’s nice that they have plenty of benches for people to rest and admire the art in the rooms.

4 Star Rating Great place with elegant architecture with quite selection of pre-revolutionary arts of noble families. When I visited there was Giovani Bellini exhibition which was amazing. Highly recommended if you want to slightly get away from busiest tourist attractions.

4 Star Rating If you have a few hours to spare in Paris then Musée Jacquemart-André is an excellent choice whilst it could be a rainy day activity, there is also a nice inner garden where you can enjoy the sun and the tranquility of a century passed. It's a private museum with an excellent art collection which will take you through how they lived during 19th century and their collections. There is normally also an external exhibition included in the entry. There is also a nice café and restaurant.
