  • 1 hour on-site. Those who like literature or the universe of Jules Verne will love. Great view of the island of Nantes since the Ste Anne butte!

  • The Museum is a bit biased, but it is really advisable. It takes a little less than 2 hours

  • A small museum friendly to discover or rediscover the author and his fantasy world. We quickly made the tour, this is just a small house converted into a Museum, but the universe is there, it's essential. The welcome is warm, the children are encouraged to explore the House and a small booklet of game is even given to them at the entrance to a playful discovery of the universe of Mr. Verne. For me it's a museum to see when we're going by Nantes, because it is affordable and well thought without taking too much time to visit.

  • An interesting enough experience while visiting Nantes. We were lucky enough to get in for free because it was digital week which was a nice surprise. They had several interactive exhibitions focused around Virtual Reality which fun. I expected a few more items on display but still something to see. The exhibition is tailored to French visitors with almost everything in French. The most annoying part is the signs displaying information about items are maybe 10% of what it actually shows in French. If you want to see some of his creations in full size head over to the nearby Island that has the giant elephant you can't miss.
  • Well, not much new to see. Whatever you might have read in his novels, you can see the original schematics and a few 3D models. Again, lacks descriptions in English.
  • Small but nice museum on the works of Jules Verne. Very original models of ships and spacecraft. Cinema room with three films about his life and work. Unfortunately no extensive library-if you have a missing work of art of the master are looking for chances are that don't see it.

  • Although again, the Museum remains quite poor intake. Little, little stories, little fun. There especially the name and the proximity of the place of birth.
