Jacquemart André


A wonderful 19 th century mansion


Jacquemart André Museum

The outside itself is worth coming to the place : a large and beautiful mansion house, XIX century style, built by the architect Henri Parent.

Nélie Jacquemart

The Jacquemart-André museum was named after its owners : Edouard André (1833-1894) and Nélie Jacquemart (1841-1912). It’s was the couple ‘s private home.


a grand and gorgeous 19th residence.and a wonderful collection of Italian art.

The Museum display the art they collected during their lives. Thus, they devoted a considerable fortune to buying works of art especially in Italy where they use to go frequently.

Though it’s in France and it gathers mainly Italian art, I felt during all my visit a type of British touch in the air… Strange.



an exquisite place to have a break, a meal or a 5 o’clock tea


I had a very nice break in the café which is located inside the museum. Such an exquisite place…! I loved it as much as the welcoming and the food. It’s not a restaurant run by a great chef, but the food is really nice. If you are vegetarian, you’ll surely be pleased too. And a great choice of delicious pastries.


I enjoyed being in such a  beautiful and luxurious as intimate and relaxing place.





















My advice : 

  • You’ll surely enjoy this place. And don’t miss the Café/restaurant which is really worth it. It’s gorgeous.
  • If you come when the weather’s fine, experience the terrace of the Café.
  • If you plan to go the “Printemps” department store (either for shopping or for the view over Paris from the rooftop), you can plan the 2 visits on the same day : the Museum Jacquemart André is about 20 minutes on foot from Le Printemps department store (on the same Boulevard Haussmann).

Printemps exterior

Le Printemps : not only a shopping area but an historic monument and a panoramic view over Paris

“Le Printemps” : one of the 4 largest department stores in Paris (Le Printemps, Les Galeries Lafayette, Le BHV Marais and Le Bon Marché).

Le Printemps dome

The department store “le Printemps” by itself is worth a visit. Its stained glass art deco dome is beautiful. You can see it from the restaurant at the 8th floor of “le Printemps”.

On the top floor, another restaurant and a panoramic terrace from which you have a stunning view all over Paris. You’ll see the Eiffel Tower, the Sacre Coeur basilica which is also called “Paris beauty spot”, and others buildings (Opera, la gare Saint Lazare, Saint Augustin church…)

  • And after your visit to La Printemps, why not going to the Jacquemart André Museum and have a meal in their café, an really exquisite place (and the museum Jacquemart André is wonderful too).
