This is a little away from the city center, approximately 900m from the Hotel de Ville, i.e. the Town Hall. However it is worth the 12 min. walk, or drive as there is parking nearby at the Cirque Jules Verne. The staff were very helpful, and gave me a visitor guide in English. You really do get a sense of... More

We visited the Maison de Jules Vernes totally unprepared, but were amazed by the beauty of the house and how it had kept the original features. We received a guide book in Dutch, which was really helpful! The people were very friendly at reception. Even though there was also a school visiting at the same time, it was still very... More

What an interesting house, again I would recommend the audio guide. The posters of Mr. Verne's books were amazing and the detail given to bringing the place alive was fantastic.

Most people will associate Jules Verne with his science fiction genre (20,000 Leagues under the Sea/Around the World in 80 days), and believe that these were his only talents. Wrong !! During his life, Jules Verne also studied law, and was a credited novelist, poet and playwright. The house situated at 2, rue Charles Dubois, depicts all the various eras... More

Home is eminently livable and gives a real impression of how a writer (or any professional) could get inspiration. It is on the corner of the block and has nice views over a neighboring park. Very nicely set-up and each floor has a different character. Appeared to be no restriction on taking photographs in any of the rooms. Cost is... More

Very interesting. Worth the money. The house was pretty much as he lived in it with his family. All his books on show. Very informative.

It's a very interesting museum: great for passing the morning. Not too packed out even on a weekend so easy to get a good look at everything. Offers excellent insight into the author's life as an explorer and scientist.

A most interesting house. We found this to be a very good use of time to tour Jules Verne's house. It was very informative to see the root source of his novels and plays. ! 12,000 book library! He lived quite well!
