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...

We visited the house of Jules Verne at the end of a quiet Sunday afternoon, and were thrilled to see a lot of the great man's original works on show, with some really interesting insights into his life. However, I'd advise against visiting in the height of the day (probably late morning-early afternoon) as with only one tour group in... More

What a well done museum. Not only did they have Verne's desk, but they had many many items from his family, old posters, books, paintings, etc. from his family and his home. The attic was fun and many items you could leaf through and the world he mapped out some of the travel on was there for you to spin!... More

Absolutely wonderful experience to walk through the rooms of Jules Verne's home. Very well presented and maintained and a great insight into his creativity and imagination. Brought it all to life! Very easy to access but unsure if there is lift for wheelchairs.

The downstairs of the house was interesting with many old items , but the higher floors had more to do with the publishing of books rather than Jules Verne. Worth going to if in the area, but not to make a special trip for
