It is more of a biography of Jules Verne: his youth, adulthood etc... It tells us about the women in his life, his wife and the books he wrote. There are ads and clips from the different movies made based on his books. If the life of Jules Verne interest you, it the attraction for you. The explanations of the exhibits is in French, but there are small booklets inn different languages. Damien, at the reception was very helpful

The museum is rather small and disappointing, and is also a bit far from the center, on top of a hill. However, if you go there, yu get to see a beautiful vue of Nantes and river Loire

Having a Nantes Pass (25 Euros for 24 hours, 35 for 48 hours) means that entrance to this museum comes free. Otherwise, the entrance fee is 3 Euros. The nearest tram station is Gare Maritime (the tram is also free courtesy of the Nantes Pass). In all honesty, I wouldn't have come here if not for the free entrance. I know a few things about Jules Verne and I've read some of his translated works, but not enough to call myself a "fan". All my hopes of getting to know him came to naught when I saw that the exhibit cards were all in French and there were no English translations, not even a guidebook (there was an English guidebook but only for the featured exhibit). There were no other media exhibits other than the physical displays, and there was no opportunity for visitor interaction. It was fascinating but also boring at the same time, so that i stayed for only 20 minutes or so. I would only recommend this museum to esteemed Verne fans who can read and understand French.

This small museum has not always received the best of reviews because the information is mainly in French but currently there is a very good exhibition, with a well-designed booklet in English. It is about the women who had an influence on Jules Verne's life and who probably helped shape/inspire the strong, female, leading-characters in many of his stories. I knew nothing about this aspect of his life or his work so it was a very enlightening exhibition. It has inspired me to seek out these less well-known - for me - stories such as The Extraordinary Journeys which feature a number of intrepid women sailors. These female characters are also committed to political struggles such as the fight against slavery and the patriotic struggle to free their respective homelands from tyranny - very much reflecting Verne's opinions on these subjects. The curators of this exhibition are to be congratulated - well done! Well worth visiting.

This museum did not reflect the imagination of Jules Verne. It needs to be more interactive. Jules Verne would have embraced today's technology.
