    This is a gem of a museum extremely interesting to visit whether or not you know the work of Balzac or his Paris Museum. The Park is beautiful and discovers strolling or dreaming on a lounger in the shade of large trees Recalling passages from the lily in the Valley. It's very romantic. The inside visit is nice because parts are clear and some furniture is beautiful. We are please to imagine the writer at his desk in a room bathed in the morning sun. It's moving. The human comedy in 3-dimensional characters, many texts of manuscripts back us in the immense work of this incredible writer. Guided visits are organized. To see absolutely. Why vacuuming is happening not before or after the opening of the Museum?

    Everything invites you to a slow and peaceful walk. A nice garden that grows to the NAP under the trees, a succession of sometimes "Museum" pieces (with original corrected from the hand of Balzac) and coins more intimate as the House of Balzac. We see not the time pass and we learn at least as you see pretty things.

    Small museum with interesting pieces. A bit small it has quickly made the turn. Not put garden in value damage.
