Being fans of Jules Verne, we were delighted to discover that his house was a museum. It certainly was interesting for all of 5 minutes - seeing as it is exactly that: a house, with no real story and very old-school type of exhibits - his furniture, copies of his books in several languages and film posters. There was no... More

Not long ago, on April 2015, we visited the Maison of Jules Verne in Amiens. The place is somewhat difficult to find for the unfamiliar visitor. In general I must say that the place is rather underwhelming. There is very little information in English, and most of what you see are just a few rooms with old furniture, posters, and... More

I would have loved to visit the house but I wasn't willing to pay to do so, I only learned after visiting from a friend that the house is free for students.

Visited the Jules Verne House while in Amiens. Very interesting! Disappointed that I could not take photographs inside and the post card selection in the gift area did not have many inside photographs either. Hard to believe the house was built in the late 1800's and that the books were also written in that era. Wished the gift shop had... More

It surprised me how much my 10-yr-old enjoyed wandering Jules Verne's house. It's not the most inspiring place in the sense that it's essentially a stultified 19th century house - but it is certainly interesting to visit and to see where Verne lived and to observe all the curios and paraphernalia of his life. There's also a little area by... More

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.
