Gettin' Cultcha: The Jacquemart-Andre Museum

As you might imagine, not a lot is open on Christmas Day. But this lovely museum, located in city center, near the Champs Elysees is. This was once a private residence and collection. Gorgeous. Simply gorgeous. Best of all it has its own tearoom, and a particularly nice one at that. Sitting in this exquisite room, surrounded by Hermes scarves, mink coats and the scents of Chanel, sipping a cup of vanilla tea and nibbling a chocolate millefeuille is destined to become one of my finer memories.

If you come here, be sure to have lunch, or just tea. A pot of tea or a cup of coffee and a pastry will set you back about 9 euros, and it is so worth it.
