  • For my part I lack of culture on Jules Verne. However I enjoyed the Museum where he transports you into an incredible universe. I discovered many things that made me want to look one of these four in one of his many books. Jules Verne no lack of imagination!

  • We visit the House in which a lived Jules Verne. Children can take a quiz that allows them to get a small degree and sign on a wall. Really to do!

  • Beautiful discovery that this Museum, but we'd like to learn more and that the cartels and comments are most searched. There is still a little on the surface of the writer and his work. Anyway, worth a 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.
