Musee Balzac is a literary museum in the former residence of French novelist Honoré de Balzac. The modest house, with its courtyard and garden, contains Balzac's writing desk and chair, his turquoise-studded cane by Lecointe, his teakettle, and his coffee pot. The ground floor has a library of the author's manuscripts, original and subsequent editions, illustrations, books annotated and signed by Balzac, books devoted to Balzac, and other books and magazines of the period. Admission to the house is free, but a fee is charged for its temporary exhibitions.
