musée Jules Verne
Jules Verne Museum
Meet the most famous of Nantes' people

Housed in a large 19th century building, like a lookout post overlooking the Loire, at the very place where “Jules Verne must have often come to contemplate the river, where it becomes the gateway to the open sea and a path to adventure” (Julien Gracq, La Forme d’une ville), this museum, which is dedicated to his life, recreates the richness and diversity of his work. Manuscripts, books and documents, illustrations, posters, games and objects invite visitors to “journey to the centre” of Verne’s writing.

In summer, take the stairs to discover a garden that invites you to travel and enjoy a plant immersion that echoes the novels of the writer.
