Jules Verne Museum (Musee Jules Verne de Nantes) Tours

Devoted to the life and works of surrealist writer Jules Verne, who was born in Nantes in 1828, the Musée Jules Verne opened its doors on the 150th anniversary of his birth, and offers a fascinating insight into one of France’s most unique and imaginative literary figures. Housed in a 19th-century waterfront residence frequented by the author, the museum’s striking white façade today stands opposite the spectacular Marine Worlds Carousel, part of Nantes’ ambitious Verne-inspired Îles des Machines.

Inside the museum, an eclectic collection of Verne’s personal effects, hand-edited manuscripts and a recreation of the writer's drawing room offer a glimpse into the mind of the literary innovator, while interactive and multimedia displays, and replicas of his inventions serve to bring masterpieces like Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and Around the World in Eighty Days to life.
