“not worth a visit”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

The house can hardly be called a museum, it's mostly used as a souvenir shop selling tickets for other museums and attractions.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

This is a well set up museum and I am sure if you speak and read French you will get a lot out of it. Even with the audio guide we found it very hard to follow and understand. All signs were in French with no translation so made it hard

“One of viandens highlights”
Reviewed 15 November 2013 via mobile

Excellent museum of a writing icon. Author of les miseables amongst other. Lots of interesting things to see and learn about the man himself. Beautifully located by the river. Entrance fee once again like the castle is very reasonable.

“Worth visiting even if you don't like or know nothing of Victor Hugo”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

I feel rather indifferent when it comes to Victor Hugo. I only know part of the basics and I never wanted to know more about him. But I had a Luxembourg Card that I wanted to make good use of, so I visited Maison de Victor Hugo.

Ever since, I feel lucky that I did. It's a fantastic exhibition. I really liked the material that was on display and the way it was displayed. One of my best museum experiences. It's impossible to convey the thrill you'll feel visiting the exhibition.

You will be awed in every room, you'll grow fond of the man and your heart will beat faster sensing Victor Hugo's love for Vianden.

The rooms are small, but packed with displays and information, so prepare for spending more than 2 hours here. You won't regret it!

“You will appreciate this if you appreciate Hugo and his work”
Reviewed 25 May 2013

This is a nice little museum and house and free with the Luxembourg Card. It is four floors and the stairways are narrow. Also the front door has a creek that might initially scare you! Also don't mistake this house for the Hotel de Victor Hugo across the street!

The museum and its collection are very nice but probably best appreciated by someone who is very familiar with Hugo and his life and work.
