Maison de Jules Verne
The house where Jules Verne lived from 1882 to 1900 today combines imaginary elements with the daily life of the famous writer. From the winter garden to the attic, you can immerse yourself in the authentic atmosphere of a 19th century town house with its period furniture.
After major renovation works, the "House with the Tower" in Amiens, where Jules Verne lived from 1882 to 1900, once again offers visitors a space where the imaginary world and the daily life of the famous writer mix.
This luxury 19th century mansion house witnessed the success of the writer, who wrote most of his "Extraordinary Voyages" there.
Both imposing and modest, on four levels and through over 700 objects in the Amiens Metropole collection, the house reveals the personality, sources of inspiration and memories of Jules Verne.
From the conservatory to the attic, relive the adventures of his heroes: Michel Strogoff, Phileas Fogg, Captain Nemo, etc.
