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.

Wonderful home, stunning staircase and garden room, I absolutely love the art and the fact that it was collected by the owners on their travels of the world, refreshing to see in this age of new money. Highly recommend. Staff very charming as well.

As others have mentioned, it gets very crowded. Although the exhibit would have been wonderful, the density of people made it near impossible to enjoy. The house itself was very appealing, but overall it was too little for too many people.

I went to the restaurant there and it was fantastic, the place is absolutely gorgeous, You would not believe there can be such a quiet place in Paris. The Restaurant is gorgeous, the waitresses were charming and very professional, really worth a try ! They do not take reservations so you better go there early for lunch, We went there at 12:30 and had no problem to sit, around 13:15 it was packed and it stayed this way until 14:00. Great food, with very fresh ingredients. I had the plat du jour (Kebabs of Scallops and Scampi) and a fantastic apple pie... But I am pretty sure all the desserts are fantastic...
