I have read most of Victor Hugo's major works, so it was a real pleasure to see his home with so many authentic furnishings. The audio guide was very well done, adding so much depth to our visit, and was worth every penny at only...More

Well worth a visit to this free small museum. The house in the Place des Vosges is on a couple of floors. It has an interesting reconstruction of Victor Hugo's home. The Chinese room was impressive.

Free visit, so might as well! Worth going to simply to hang out at the Place des Vosges. Grab a gelato at Amorino and stay for a while in the gorgeous area!

Not much here, but if you are at the Place des Vosges, pop in. It’s free! (And they gave a bathroom.)

We stopped here on our way to attend Church on Sunday morning. The cost is free. The artwork and decor are lovely. The English signage is very brief. We didn't use an audio guide. My favourite room is the one with all of the plates...More

I was surprised that one did not have to pay an entrance fee to the museum. But the audioguide for 5 Euro was totally worth the price. Without that i would have been lost and missed a lot of details. 30 minutes is what it...More
