Set just a short walk from the centre of Amiens, a visit to Jules Verne house not only gives an insight into the author's life but also Amiens life at the end of the 19th century. The entry fee was a reasonable 7.5 euro's and on arrival the English speaking reception gave us a comprehensive English language guide folder. The house is cleverly laid out to cover many aspects of Verne's life and the group of four of us enjoyed the visit. A couple of downsides, there were a lot of students visiting when we were there and for some reason the house was quite warm, particularly as we got higher. That said a visit to the museum is certainly worthwhile if in Amiens and on a practical level there are toilets and vending machines for drinks.
