Nice little museum house of Jules Verne. Its a little walk outside the city center area of Amiens but as a fan of his books I still want to give it a visit. Was really nice, like a little timetravel along his life, books and how all those fantasy stuff evolved.

We've visited this house a few times as it us absolutely amazing. It has very strange opening hours but a late pm visit is usually best. Be aware there are a lot of steep stairs to climb once inside the house which us a good 10 minute walk from the centre of Amiens.

We visited the Maison de Jules Verne at the end of a long day tramping the streets of Amiens and were rewarded with a venue that was emptying out very quickly. The exhibits are staged through what was Verne's life, and are a really interesting insight into one of France's great writers....but looking at the numbers leaving as we arrived,... More

At the desk tell them your nationality and they will loan you a booklet telling all about the museum and what you will be seeing. That really helped us enjoy his home. The 3rd floor is done in the style of 20,000 Leagues under the Sea. Worthwhile museum to visit

I guess the biggest problem with this place is that it happens to be in Amiens, and I suspect that Amiens is generally not on everybody's route on their European holiday, however if you do happen to be in the area, or are a bit of a science-fiction buff, then it is definitely worth checking out. The house is basically... More

We walked around in 10 minutes. Some interesting stuff but I think you have to be a fan to enjoy it.

Had a really nice visit to Jules Verne house. Nice weather when we went but it would be a good thing to do if it was rainy. We found it really interesting. Good insight into his life and to go inside one of these magnificent french houses. Not a good trip for anyone with mobility problems as there are several... More

If you're a Jules Vernes fan, than this must be a part of a pilgrimage, and if you're not, than it's still very interesting. The former house of Jules Vernes is very well laid out, easy to navigate in and a lot to see about this incredible writer. You'll need to climb several stairs, BUT there is an elevator hidden...
