  • Jules Verne never lived in this House, but the Museum has manuscripts of the author, items that belonged to him, a film of archive. It allows to discover the life of this author to the immense talent who did dream of entire generations of children. This visit is an opportunity to get back into some stories read a long time ago and makes you want to read the never read novels. The little shop offers books but also friendly objects around the world of J V: 7 families, Chinese shadows, rules in 3D game...

  • I expected much more from this Museum Jules Verne. The small square that adjacent is well more speaking itself, with its two statues as the museum itself. A bookstore would have enough to replace this place that is mostly filled with writings.

  • A museum that could be better highlighted. The building is very beautiful but poor development of the collections. Damage

  • 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.
