Musée Littéraire 'Victor Hugo', Vianden

(3.3/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
Briefly used as a home by the famed writer Victor Hugo, Musée Littéraire 'Victor Hugo' offers four floors of refurbished rooms with artifacts relating to the writer's life. Ask for an audio guide from the reception desk to help you on your self-guided tour, because the documents and information plates are all in French. Each room is laid out simply with furniture from the 19th century, as well as white-washed sculptures of the great writer himself using the room as he may have during his time in Vianden. Be careful not to confuse the museum with the Hotel de Victor Hugo across the street. A Luxembourg City card includes admission to this house.

  • 1852-1871: Jersey, Guernsey, Brussels... It does not always account but the great Victor Hugo has lived twenty out of France because of its commitment political pro-people and his disagreement with the powerful. His last residence before his final return to the country was the charming small town of Vianden, the Luxembourg, during the summer and the beginning of the fall of 1871. The Grand Duchy has had the courage to welcome the one who was persona non grata in Belgium and France and it is now awarded since the House held the author has been transformed into a nice Museum, which attracts not only the Germans, Belgians and the French close, but people around the world, especially from Asia (70% of visitors!). What strikes to start it is that good that damaged at the end of the second world war and restored twice (the last time in 2002), the place has kept one side living very moving. The great writer (of the less his statue by the German sculptor Herbert Labusga) is present among the visitors: we see him sitting at his desk (authentic as all the furniture of the room), pen in hand, looking out the window (what we can do we too) Our flowing with background and overlooking the beautiful castle (now restored). In other rooms, signs inform us about the reactions of Luxembourg journalists at that time to the works of Hugo (consensus was not appropriate for the current statufie Victor Hugo) as well as on the daily life of the great man in the village. We learn for example the schedule of his days in Vianden: work in the morning; the afternoon excursions; dinner (with his family and guests) to the hostel Koch in front. We even discovered he made the chain during an intense fire that ravaged several thatched houses. And helped financially on the victims for their relocation. So we are in the company of a living Hugo, hustling conservatism at the same time that disturbed by them, which does not merely set out broad humanistic principles but that applies to the letter in the daily. There are still many other interesting things to see, especially the remarkable drawings and paintings of the locality and the region by Hugo himself. There are also excerpts from his diary which are illustrated on the walls by a Pit all but Wagner arts. And the great Victor autograph letters. For more information you can find on the second floor three computer terminals giving access to some 500 documents. In short, a very rich Museum that passionnera those who love literature and will tell more to those who don't know about Hugo from the title of his two most famous novels or by their film or musical adaptations. However, it is not at all for young children

  • Little museum, in the house where Victor Hugeo leave for a short time; give you many informations of his life, pictures, paintings of this well known author and writer.  more »
  • Had an hour to kill on our last day and decided we would pop in and see Victor Hugo's house that he lived in for a short time in 1871. Entrance fee was 5 Euro and, realistically, that should have been...  more »

  • Very small museum located in a simple house. The collection is small and not too good at all, the entrance is used as souvenir shop specialised in selling tickets for oher museums and the little tourist train. I don't advise to pay for the museum.
  • Very interesting if you like cultural history; well installed
  • Victor Hugo in French if you can ' like '. No English description in one of the exhibits. Guide pamphlet exists is unsure where.
