Make a date at Maison de Jules Verne in June

Literature is at the heart of Maison Jules Verne in June! Throughout the month, there are exhibitions, visits and evening events. In brief, a packed programme for both adults and children to enjoy !




From the 5th to the 22nd of June, visit the "Créations de Rolleurs" ("Roller Creations") exhibition brought to you by "Lire et Ecrire au Collège" with writers from the Hauts-de-France. Resulting from a cultural partnership between eleven secondary schools from the Amiens Academy and a network of home-grown writers, this exhibition highlights students' own creations after meeting up with artists, storytellers, comedians and exploring a text, an author or a local heritage site. These creations are not only original but also quite varied (including drawings, videos and games.) They are are being exhibited at the Collège Rosa Parks and the inauguration is on 7th June at 10 a.m.


Sunday, 10th June at 3.00 p.m. This is your date for the month: A "mystery" guided tour. As in previous months, a character from the world of Jules Verne will take you on a unique and unusual tour !


Since December 2011, Maison Jules Verne has been offering writing workshops organized by Claude Tillier, the house guide and a writer himself. He is the author of several books about Amiens’ iconic literary character, Jules Verne.


To draw a close to 2017-2018, two evening events out of three are on offer to you in May and the third and last will take place on Thursday, 14th June at 6.30 p.m. This is an opportunity to meet this season's participants and to attend a presentation of their writing.

Free entry by reservation at the Maison Jules Verne (
Please note, there is a limited number of places !


The "Revelations: A comic book revealing the secrets of Maison Jules" exhibition is still showing and is running until 29th August. In partnership with "Création de bandes dessinées" (Comic Design) university graduates, Maison Jules Verne will be sharing some hidden secrets about Jules Verne and the place where he lived. With a zest for research and a touch of imagination, you can attend a reconstruction of certain rooms and key moments in this writer's life. For instance,his first meeting with the publisher, Hertzel ... This exhibition will then run through comic strips that are an integral part of the permanent exhibition.

The exhibition is part of the visit and included in the entrance ticket.
