Small but pleasant museum dedicated to the early Pioneer of sci fi. Speaking french would be an advantage of course, but there are enough English bits to help tell the story of his life.
Very interesting though could do with translations for non French speakers
Seems like a good place, but it's small and the exhibit is only in French.
Very well hidddden quaint and not much English. But lovely.
I would have given it five stars but, unfortunately, it is all in French so although I am a huge fan of his works and was able to work out for myself what was what, I would say my kids, 6 and 9, were somewhat bored, not having read a single book yet and not being able to read French.
An interesting enough experience while visiting Nantes. We were lucky enough to get in for free because it was digital week which was a nice surprise. They had several interactive exhibitions focused around Virtual Reality which fun. I expected a few more items on display but still something to see. The exhibition is tailored to French visitors with almost everything in French. The most annoying part is the signs displaying information about items are maybe 10% of what it actually shows in French. If you want to see some of his creations in full size head over to the nearby Island that has the giant elephant you can't miss.
Do you know the way?
Beautiful but a little smaller than expected.
Nantes is the home of Jules Verne and his museum is a wonderful place to find out more about this visionary author. It stand but a few short metres from the monument to him and his most famous creation Captain Nemo
Cute small museum, clearly designed for kids. It is great if you have children because a game is organized throughout the visit but as I was in my own I don't feel I learnt or saw anything too special.
