Presentation
In love with the 18th century, the banker Moïse de Camondo, collector passionate about furniture and decorative elements from the French art of the eighteenth century, erected in 1911 a mansion whose architecture is inspired by the Petit Trianon of Versailles. The building built by the architect René Sergent, is built in place of the old hotel that had belonged to the parents of Moïse de Camondo.

Moïse de Camondo ordered the construction of this private mansion in order to house his collections and his family. Following the death of his son Nissim during the First World War, Moïse decides to donate his collections in memory of his son, provided that the museum takes the name of the latter. The museum is inaugurated in December 1936

Located close to the Parc Monceau, the museum houses a magnificent collection of French decorative art from the second half of the 18th century. Throughout the rooms, you can discover Aubusson tapestries, paintings by Elisabeth Vigée-Lebrun, works of art that belonged to Marie Antoinette, a collection of Sèvres porcelain and furniture signed by cabinetmakers Riesener and Oeben.

The place also hosts temporary exhibitions.
