Bucket list experience:

A front view of the Jacquemart-André Museum on a cloudy day

Last updated: 23 September, 2022
Expert travel writer: Anna Brooke

Jacquemart-Andre Museum is proof of the discerning taste of the 19th-century banking heir Edouard Andre and his wife Nelie Jacquemart. Italian Renaissance masterpieces by Botticelli and Uccello, French portraiture and decorative arts, Dutch and English paintings are all displayed around this grandiose mansion – even the café has a Tiepolo on the ceiling.

The museum is divided into five major parts:

The State Apartments, for formal receptions, rich in French paintings and 18th-century decorative art.

The Informal Apartments, for receiving business relations, is decorated in a refined style.

The Winter Garden is inspired by Opera Garnier.

The Italian Museum is home to their collections of 15th- and 16th-century Italian sculpture, with masterpieces by Francesco Laurana, Donatello, Luca Della Robbia and others; plus painted masterpieces by Botticelli, Francesco Botticini and Perugino, and Ucello’s celebrated St. George and the Dragon.

The Private Apartments occupy part of the mansion’s ground floor.
