This is worth the visit. Interesting guy and the museum does a good job of reflecting the work and personality of Jules Verne.

I now know that Jules Verne wrote, a lot, more than 20,000 Leagues under the sea and Around the world in 80 days! A lovely look into the life of a man that wrote about things that are now only starting to happen. If, like me, you like learning in small, digestable chunks then a visit here won't over tax... More

A real globe trotter of a man is Jules Verne, (at least in his books). A really interesting tour of his house on three levels.

This was one of the "house" tours we did, more to understand how people lived in France. A good collection of JV within the house itself, and the self guided tour (folder with info, in various languages. We got the English folder) is a good idea, allowing you to take it as your own pace.

At the recommendation of an avid reader and movie goer I decided to visit Maison de Jules Verne - the architecture, atmosphere and history of this house makes it well worth your time to visit - a living example of a bygone era and a man who could see into the future - don't miss it...

Very good place to visit if you have read any Jules Verne's books. Plenty of Wall paintings depicting the books and old film posters as well as lots about his life.

Really enjoyed our trip to Jules Verne House. If you are familiar with his books: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea etc then you will love it even more. 7 Euros per adult entrance fee. Very well kept and lots of original things from his days there...

Not very big, but very interesting, spent about a 1 hour visiting, me and my wife enjoyed it very much, but my two children were a little bored. Well worth a visit.

A great house, very well preserved a great range of items to see. Many books and artefacts, the house has had a spiral staircase installed that amazingly does not appear out of place.
