  • Attention, get there quickly because work will begin early April 2018 and is will be closed at least 1 year. In a House of the great man, you can see furniture (also designed by Victor Hugo during his exile), photos, drawings, paintings and sculptures, letters... It's a lovely home. Note, the staff is nice and eager to learn. Currently, an exhibition of art brut, really great, but this one done March 18, 2018.

  • It's more that his home visit - located on the wonderful place des Vosges - he is a man that we discover. Imposing figure, we learn to know him by his exuberant, often Asian décor. For example, he always wrote standing up, leaning on a Clipboard specifically designed for him. He received a lot in his house, getting involved not only in literary circles, but also in active politics. He defended its values as a politically involved citizen. We found a book written to Victor Hugo by his grandchildren, who regarded him as a father. The stories he told them often led him to writing, which is stated as a sudden and unstoppable need.

  • Nice, free one floor museum, with lots of original, or at periodic furniture and artwork. Nicely arranged, with English explanation! 30 minutes are enough for this one
  • Beautiful museum, not to informative. Very interesting and we enjoyed it very much. It's lovely to walk around and feel the history of the place. If you have time, it's a must.
  • We get to see bits of Victor Hugo’s house around the beautiful place des vosges. Beautiful details, and amazing attraction for FREE, for once, in Paris ;)
  • A thoroughly decorated flat full of references and crafts depicting the life of an eminent writer, the Victor Hugo flat is a must-see, not only because it's free entry (€5 for the audio guide) but because the small exhibition with its details and artifacts give a rare personal insight into the life of a historical figure and his family.
  • Interesting and informative visit, for free. The appartment is in a beautiful old house, it is well decorated and arranged with care.
