JACQUEMART-ANDRE MUSEUM 

 

 We'd never heard of this Paris museum before and found it almost like visiting a chateau right in the heart of Paris.  This "museum in a mansion" was built at the end of the 19th century in Haussmann’s redesigned Paris as the private residence of wealthy art collectors, Edouard André and Nélie Jacquemart.  They devoted their entire lives to collecting works of art and displaying them in their fabulous home.  Eduoard Andre was heir to a Protestant banking family - so just like today - that's where the money is!  At least in this case a large portion of it was devoted to a collection like this which folks like us are able to see today.
