Maison Carré is a private villa designed by Alvar Aalto for the French art dealer Louis Carré (1897-1977). It is situated near Paris.

The Finnish Cultural Foundation bought the building and part of its movable property in 2006 with 1,5 million euro on behalf of the Association Alvar Aalto en France. The association is in charge of the Maison Carré as well as its operation.

The Maison Carré was opened to the public in August 2007. It offers an introduction to Finnish architecture and design for the French.
