The museum is housed in a private mansion built by Edouard André and his wife Nélie Jacquemart towards the end of the 19th century when Baron Haussmann was in the process of laying out the new Paris.
The museum includes the State Apartments, the Informal Apartments, the Winter Garden, the Italian Museum and the Private Apartments.
Check back later for lots of pictures and an account of my visit! I think I might have to stop into the Guerlain shop on the Champs Elysées while I'm there as the interiors there are exquisite. Hmm... might have to sample some perfume while I'm there; no classy and fabulous girl should be without a fragrance wardrobe!
