It's a very interesting museum: great for passing the morning. Not too packed out even on a weekend so easy to get a good look at everything. Offers excellent insight into the author's life as an explorer and scientist.

A most interesting house. We found this to be a very good use of time to tour Jules Verne's house. It was very informative to see the root source of his novels and plays. ! 12,000 book library! He lived quite well!
