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.

This is one of the houses in which Jules Verne lived while in Amiens, now a museum with some interesting memorabilia and rooms reconstructions in the 3 floors connected through the round stairs. So many books. Good atmosphere.

This is a great place. It is over a century old but, when you visit, you feel absolutely comfortable and enchanted by the man's mind and history. A favorite place of ours in Amiens.

The house contains a great collection of memorabilia about the life and times of Jules Verne and his publisher with beautiful furniture which belonged to the latter. Naturally the bulk of the written information was in French but enough had been translated to enable visitors with no knowledge of the language to enjoy the experience and the helpful reception staff...

I absolutely loved this museum set up in Jules Verne's house. It's a nice walk from the centre and you can't miss it as it has a large world atlas popping out of the roof. From the moment I walked in I was captivated. The guy on the desk gave us an English folder and explained how to walk around... More
