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

This house is where Jules Verne lived for some years and where he wrote a lot of his books. A typical visit will be a tour by yourself using a booklet provided by the reception - these are available in several languages. During the visit you will learn about Jules Verne as a person, about his collaboration with his publisher... More

Jules Verne's home with many interesting artifacts from his life and writings. Check on opening times - it closes at lunchtime on some days. It takes at least an hour to explore. You are given a small folder to take round with you describing the contents of each room (there is an English version).

We enjoyed our visit to Maison de Jules Verne with it's original furniture, paintings, photographs and memorabilia. On several floors via a spiral staircase. Memorabilia in the attic was particularly interesting. English guide notes were available.
