The Jules Verne museum is a trip to the center of Vernian writing. Nestled on Sainte-Anne hill overlooking the Loire, a vast 19th century bourgeois house has been home to the Jules Verne museum since 1978. From your Première Classe Nantes Rezé Aéroport hotel, opt for a literary afternoon on the edge of the author's imagination and ingenious creations. During a chronological and then thematic tour, the museum presents excerpts from the works, posters, portraits, letters, models of extraordinary machines (such as the Nautilus), illustrations, etc. inviting the spectator to enter the writer's whimsical universe. A number of objects that belonged to him are also on display, such as a globe, patinated by time. The museography is complemented by digital media and ends in a projection room and a reading room. Originally from Nantes, Jules Vernes (1828-1905) spent his childhood there before leaving for other regions. Often considered one of the most famous historical figures of the city, many creations and events pay tribute to him (such as the Machines de l'île which remind us of his fantastic worlds). As one of the most translated authors in the world, the museum strives to raise public awareness of the richness of Nantes' Vernian collections. An exotic journey into the author's wonderful worlds!
