MAD - Musée Nissim de Camondo

Passionate about the 18th century, the Count de Camondo had a private mansion built in the style of the Petit Trianon at Versailles. A short walk from the Parc Monceau, the museum houses a spectacular collection of French decorative art from the second half of the 18th century. Admire Aubusson tapestries, canvases by Élisabeth Vigée-Lebrun or items that once belonged to Marie-Antoinette. Also on display, a collection of Sèvres porcelain and furniture by cabinetmakers Riesener and Oeben.
