Guided visit to the Musée Nissim de Camondo

April 21 @ 9:45 am - 11:30 am UTC+1

Place: Musée de Camondo, Paris 17e

Limited to 20 people

The Nissim Camondo Museum is one of the most elegant private mansions of the 20th century still standing in Paris. It houses 18th century French furniture and art objects. The banker Moïse de Camondo was a passionate  collector and in 1911 he built a mansion to house his collection and as a family residence. Although the mansion was entirely decorated with furniture from past centuries, it was equipped with all the comforts of modern life. After the death of his son Nissim during World War I, de Camondo decided to donate the property in his memory. During World War II, the Comte lost many remaining members of his family in a concentration camp.

Combined with a visit to the mansion, there is a special exhibit of Edmund de Waal, a British author and ceramicist who is a member of the de Camondo family. The exhibit is based on his latest book, Letters to Camondo, which I would highly suggest that you read before our visit to have some more background.
