Jacquemart-André Museum In Paris

Imagine an artistic journey through the heart of the Italian Renaissance, 18th century French masterpieces and works by the Flemish masters just by visiting the home of Nélie Jacquemart and Edouard André who were 19th century collectors with an intense passion for art.

And without having to travel out from the capital city of France you can visit their sumptuous mansion, its art collection and treasures from the private collection of Edouard and Nelie that has been turned into a museum called the Musee Jacquemart-André, which is situated close to the famous Avenue des Champs Elysees with its shops and restaurants.

Jacquemart-André Museum In Paris

So for those of you who are not so keen on a vast expanse like The Louvre and would rather visit an art museum in Paris that has a homely feel where you can wander through the many rooms admiring not just the paintings and beautiful tapestries but also the sculptures, furniture and other objet d'art, then this has got to be put on your list of places to visit.

The museum is open every day of the year except for 25th December and 1st January from 10am through to 6pm.  Plus there is a shop that is also open from the same times every day, which has a wide selection of books, souvenirs and items relating to the museums exhibits and temporary exhibition as well, and because it can be visited independently to the museum, is an ideal place to get an unusual gift.

There is a lovely cafe and tea room also situated inside the mansion house that is located in the old dining room where you can sit peacefully gazing admiringly at the tapestries and the Tiepolo ceiling. Called The Jacquemart-André Café, it is open daily from 11.45am through to 5.30pm serving salads, pastries, afternoon tea, etc, but you do not have to visit the museum itself to take advantage of the beautiful surroundings for a lunch.   

As well as the permanent exhibits on display, they also hold temporary exhibitions such as the Van Dyck, European Portrait Painter, Exhibition, which brought together works from all over the world and was the first one of its kind for Van Dyck ever to be held in France.

The cost for entry is around 10€ at full rate, however one child is free of charge when paying for three other people but children under the age of seven are free.  Plus within this cost each person is supplied with an interactive audio guide device that allows the visitor to wander around at his or her own pace, and guaranteeing an entertaining and interesting guide, it is available in eight different languages which are French, English, German, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Russian and Dutch.

There are activity books available for children between the ages of seven and twelve, which is a fun and enriching way to discover the Museum through a series of puzzles where they can learn through play.

But also during the summer months of July and August every day from 2.30pm through to 5.30pm there are various free activities for the children and for all the family to enjoy during your museum visits, and these do not require any prior reservations. 

It is within this 'Family Fun Programme' space, located just opposite the museum entrance that a co-ordinator will provide you with a book of games available, in versions for children aged 4-6 and those aged 7-12, so you are then free to start off on your discovery of this great museum and the temporary summer exhibition.

Once you have been around the Jacquemart-Andre museum, you return to the 'Family Fun Programme' area where the children can be decorating an object or a mask, or just enjoying the colouring and play, plus you will also be able to take home a souvenir of your visit, by taking your own photographs of your child dressed up as a marquis or a page.

Because the Musee Jacquemart-André is situated near to the Champs Elysees in the 8th arrondissement in Paris, it is very easy to get to either via the RER through the Charles de Gaulle-Etoile stop or alternatively the closest Metro stations are either the Miromesnil or Saint Philippe du Roule.

Being it has a great authentic atmosphere on a far smaller scale than some of the chateaux around Paris such as Chateau de Versailles, why not go and discover the treasures at this authentic mansion that has been a museum since 1913 after it was bequeathed to the Institut of France.
