We enjoyed Musee Jules Verne even though only about half of the exhibit has an English translation. There was a gentleman there who was very anxious for us to view his virtual reality film. We had a delightful time.

After walking up the steep hill, we were disappointed to find the museum closed for lunch -check times before you go. Set in a house on several levels, overlooking the river, there are many artefacts about the life of Jules Verne. If you are very...More
