Musée Jacquemart-André

If there was one museum in Paris which I find the prettiest no matter how many times i’ve been, it’s undoubtedly the Jacquemart-André museum. The only advice is to arrive early at opening time as it’s the favorite museum of retirees (or so my husband claims).

The magnificent entryway invites you to discover in all its splendor, the passion shared by the couple who owned this mansion and later donated it to the Institut de France after their deaths. Edouard André and Nelie Jacquemart amassed a vast collection of art and sculptures during their life, mostly Italian but quelle beauté!

After the visit, have lunch or tea at the café which fills up within minutes and there’s always a long line. The cakes and tarts are DELICIOUS and the service always friendly and quick.

The next time you find yourself in Paris, don’t forget to put this on your list!
