Well this is a nice little museum that I have enjoyed over the years and it should be seen more indeed.
It has a nice audioguide that tells you the story of husband and wife Nélie Jacquemart and Edouard André describing their private collection with its state rooms, monumental staircase, winter garden, private apartments, and reception rooms.
French paintings from the 18C, such as Fragonard, Chardin, and Boucher. Dutch paintings from the 17C Rembrandt, Van Dyck, etc, English paintings from the 18C such as Reynolds, and Lawrence. ITalian renaissance from the 15C such as Botticeli, Bellini, and MAntegna.

My Favorite Museum in Paris
158, Boulevard Haussmann
Step back in time a hundred years and step into the home of Edouard André and his wife Nélie Jacquemart, both avid art collectors. When Nélie died she left her home and art to Institut de France, specifying it should be left exactly as it as it was-- no furniture could be moved, no piece of art shifted-- and opened to the public as a museum.
These wishes were respected, so you get to "step back in time" and experience first-hand the late 19th century home of a wealthy Parisian couple.
The art is diverse, with heavy doses of Italian. Be sure to appreciate the remarkable "Christ at Emmaus" by Rembrandt Van Rijn; the magical interplay of dark and light will stun you.
Recorded tours are available in many languages. And you can have a marvelous light lunch in the museum restaurant, and then browse through the gift shop.
In addition to its regular permanent collection, the museum features special expositions; check the web site for information (the French site is more up to date than the English one).
On the first Sunday of each month from February to June, students from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Paris, offer concerts in the museum. Two performances are given, one at 3:00 PM and one at 4:00. This is a wonderful opportunity to appreciate art for the ears while appreciating art for the eyes!
