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.

This was a private house and now it is a museum along the lines of a smaller Wallace collection. Definitely worth a visit and they have interesting special exhibitions too. We saw the Caravaggios today. Good cafe attached as well. Recommended.

I came here to see the Caravaggio exhibit, but was shocked to find such a stunning and well preserved mansion. The art is amazing to see, but for me the real gem was the architecture. And the perfectly preserved furniture. It was a glimpse into the life of the aristocratic life style. By tickets ahead of time though. I waited like 90 min in the cold to get in

Come ready to lineup before entering the museum as well as the cafe. It is a small house museum so numbers are liMited. However, my line moved quickly. The house is beautiful and the art is stunning. A must see in Paris! Other than the queues the museum is a short visit in comparison to other Parisian museums.

Gorgeous museum, and just the right size. We were lucky enough to be in Paris for the Caravaggio Temporary Exhibit at the museum, which was stunning. But even without that exhibit, the permanent collection is gorgeous and the rooms of the house are sumptuously and beautifully decorated. Even the café and gift shop are luxurious and special. One of my favorite Paris museums!
