Maison De Victor Hugo - Review
It is one of the 14 ‘City of Paris Museums’ where Victor Hugo (the famous French poet, novelist and dramatist of the Romantic Movement) stayed for the longest time of his life. His famous work Ruy Blas was completed in this apartment. Today, the apartment houses some of his famous works that he had completed during his stay here, between 1832 and 1848. Since 2013 the apartment has been turned into a museum. At present, when you visit the museum you will get to see two temporary exhibitions where the famous works of Hugo that defines him as visionary illustrator are put on display.

Maison De Victor Hugo, Paris Reviews
Recommend a visit if you are in the area (or a Victor Hugo fan) and have some time to look around. The house is free to enter. There are some signs in English or you can hire the audio guide for 5 euro. There was also an exhibition on when we visited with caricatures. I enjoyed the old banquet menus and bread on display - fantastic!
Entering a house where one of the greatest novelist and poets lived and wrote his masterpieces takes you back to another era and the time when a world was so different and still fascinating to this day. His home, now a museum is an homage to this magnificent writer. To see his personal treasures, furniture, photos, artwork, a feather pan and ink stand he used to write with is incredibly amazing. To see his dead bed is absolutely surreal. I couldn’t believe l was in the room where this great writer and artist lived and died. After l watched Les Miserables in Toronto l am thrilled l had the opportunity to see the ambiance where this great man wrote his fantastic books in Paris. Museum is like a movie scene from different times but still very much beautiful and fascinating thanks to Victor Hugo and his masterful writings and artwork. Great novelist, poet, artist, dramatist, truly one of a kind! Victor Hugo and his books are timeless.
After loving the books of Victor Hugo, I was so excited to go to his house. It was so interesting to see where he lived and the windows he looked out of when he lived in France. The audio guide had some interesting information, but definitely could have been cut down.
My husband and I were walking through the neighborhood to a clothing boutique I wanted to check out, and when he checked google maps to ensure we were heading in the right direction, my husband discovered we were a block from Maison de Victor Hugo! His favorite book is Les Mis, so we decided to pop over and see where this literary genius lived. This was one of the best little surprises we encountered while in Paris. The tour is quick, maybe 45 minutes. Entry is free, and an audio tour is 5€. It is also right across from a little park where you can actually picnic on the grass, so be sure to grab a baguette and cheese before going and enjoy a picnic in a spot frequented mainly by locals!
Very nice place to spend your afternoon. Recommended to rent an audio guide.
