Jules Verne lived in this house from 1882 to 1900 and wrote 44 books there. We cannot remember seeing a house museum as well done as this one. It was just over the top and filled with his memorabilia. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

On Friday's from 16:30 there is no entrance fee. We had this luck.
Personally I would have expected to see more tange-able items of Jules Verne brain. But that is all to do with expectations.
The models displayed I feel interresting and nice.

Neat look into the home of the writer. Cool architecture. Worth a visit. The highlight of Amiens for my science-nerd husband.

This venue is the home of Jules Verne that has been opened as a musee of the great writer. Fans of Jules Verne will find this well worth the time to stop by and enjoy the exhibits.
Our son (a writer himself) especially enjoyed viewing his personal office, and who he entertained at his home.
Nice way to spend a little time. Not your "usual" musee!

We visited the house of Jules Verne and we liked it a lot.
Of course, the fact that you visit the house with a guide make the visit even more interesting.
Interesting to know more about a writer I liked a lot when child.
