The rooms have been arranged with careful thought to walk through themes in Jules Verne books and elements of history. Well worth a visit for those interested either in Jules Verne or who want to have a greater appreciation for Amien's past

We dined here twice and found the food and service excellent. I ordered the main meal that incorporated all three of the specialties that my host had recommended. Ficelle picarde, le pate du canard Amiens and la flamiche. It was a lovely meal but for me the standout was the Ficelle picarde. It was amazing. My Partner was complimentary on... More

I was already a Jules Verne fan, but the visit to his house took my interest to a new level. Only 1 or 2 rooms are still as they were. Nonetheless, well worth the visit. The others have been done to reflect what they were. Others have been done to look like his boat, for example. Lots of neat extras... More

The house where Jules Verne lived for many years is lovely and has kept its 19th-century décor. There are many fascinating exhibits related to the author and his publisher.

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
