Enjoyed passing an hour in the museum, enhanced by the good English-language guide given out. It was a shame there weren't more postcards of the fascinating items on display, as no photos were allowed, and there were no English language copies of the books in shop, which my kids wanted to buy but couldn't!

If you are in Amiens for a few days, I would definitely recommend visiting the home of Jules Verne.

If you are a Jules Verne fanatic, then maybe if you don't mind the overall lack authentic objects. Except for some amazing first additions and some excellent poster illustrations we found it pretty uninspiring. We used the audio guides and they basically just gave you us history lesson, which was ok, but it didn't keep you listening much in the... More

I came across the Jules Verne house quite by accident and, as a writer, couldn't believe my luck. The house is the most amazing treasure trove of information, original editions, reproductions of Jules Verne's writing as well as being the closest thing to a living museum I've ever seen. Wonderful displays, amazing posters, replica models of ships, flying machines, balloons...simply... More

If you like Jules Verne a MUST. We were there before it opened, walk from the hotel was closer than we thought. A beautifully restored home of the famous writer. Every detail was well though of. An amazing place we spent several hours there. it was a worthwhile morning.

I am so glad I could visit one of the house of the master of science fiction ;-) And a place that counted for him, as he's been also playing a political role in the area.

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
