I went to Amiens to tour the WWI battlefields in the area & because of its location kinda close to Paris. I was surprised to find that it was also Jules Verne central - the University is named after him and there was a little spot on the map called Mas de Jules Verne that I wandered down to see... More

An interesting house where you climb spiral stairs and view the many books written by Jules Verne. The books display amazing covers and one can imagine Mr Verne writing at his desk in his home. Great insight into the author. Well worth a visit.

This very personal and cosy house is full of interest . There are lots of Jules Vernes' own things and also those of his editor . The house is on several floors and each is dedicated to a different aspect of his life . Most of the information is in French and English . Bookshop and vending machines and seats... More

This is a well laid out house with lots of interesting information. It is a bit of a walk from the centre of Amien but well worth it. The staff are helpful and friendly

We enjoyed thus splendid house,even though we had not read his books. We felt that some of the exhibits were not directly relevant - there was an awful lot about the publisher, but it was all very interesting, and well presented. We were both inspired to read some Jules Verne afterwards. It would be good if the shop sold some... More

Not knowing a lot about Jules Verne I found this museum extremely interesting and very informative. We did the audio-tour which took about an hour. The staff were helpful and could speak English. If you are open to new experiences then I highly recommend this attraction. Easy walking distance from the Cathedral.

We visited Jules Verne's house for something to do on a rainy day but was pleasantly surprised. We found out a lot about the man himself that we never knew and there are many interesting objects in his house. Our only disappointment was the banning of photography in the house. There are quite a few large models of the machines... More

Well preserved traditional house of Jules Verne. I'm not a massive fan of the author however I did enjoy the tour of the house. Worth a visit.

We were educated a lot more about the capacity of Jules Vernes for writing and use of imagination. Friendly staff and our children loved the attic he wrote in

Although I considered the entrance fee a little bit to much, it is a very interesting detour to make at this home of Jules Verne. It takes you to a short time-travel to his time-period, to a house full with early 20th century style interior, to bits of Verne's fantasy world and everyday-life, to little relics for a Verne fan.
