Events at the Maison Jules Verne

Jules Verne's home, the Maison de Jules Verne can be visited throughout the year, but its team are continually finding ways to help you see it in a different light. Consequently, the month of May has a few surprises in store for you. We'll let you see for yourselves...











Sunday, 13 May 2018, at 15:00: "Mystery" guided tour

One Sunday a month, you can visit the house in the company of a character from the life or work of Jules Verne. Each character presents the place in his own way and thus highlights aspects of the visit that are unique to him or her. Who will be your guide: Jules Verne, Honorine Verne, the publisher Pierre-Jules Hetzel, Captain Nemo, journalist Nellie Bly, Passepartout, Robur-le-Conquérant or Mademoiselle Rose? It's still a complete mystery.


Bookings only. Limited to 15 people. Visit included in the entrance ticket.





Saturday 19 May 2018, starting at 19:00: Nuit Européenne des Musées, European Museums Night

To celebrate the occasion, come and discover, free of charge, the cosy atmosphere of a 19th-century mansion house. Discover Jules Verne's world, his works and his influences piece by piece.

As a rare treat, there has been a cultural exchange between the Maison de Jules and the Musée de Picardie. You can admire works borrowed from the Musée de Picardie in a completely different setting.

Further information:
19:00 to midnight. Last entrance at 23:30. Free admission.
Open to all. Information on +33 322 454575



From 24 May to 29 August: Exposition Révélations: when the comic strip reveals the invisible.

In partnership with students of the "Création de bandes dessinées", the University Diploma in Comic Strip Design, the Maison Jules Verne will attempt to share the hidden secrets of Jules Verne and the place where he lived. With a hint of research and a touch of imagination, you will be able to witness a reconstruction of particular pieces and key moments in the writer's life such as, for example, his first meeting with the publisher Hertzel. This exhibition will then lead to the creation of comic strip boards that will become an integral part of the permanent exhibition.

The exhibition is offered as a part of your visit, and is included in the entrance ticket.
