This atypical museum is set in the beautiful and expansive bourgeois town house of Édouard André and his wife Nélie Jacquemart, built towards the end of the 19th Century. An art collector married to a painter, their private collection – including a large selection of Renaissance art - grew quickly and soon they set about organising their large home in order to display it.
When Édouard died in 1894, Nélie finished off their work and bequeathed the house, grounds and – of course – art to the Institut de France, stipulating that it be turned into a museum and opened to the public. The place is unchanged since 1913, and worth a visit as much for the grand rooms and lush furnishings as for the collection itself.
