Jules Verne Museum, Nantes

Posted by on November 22nd,2009

There were many writers that influenced the Steampunk mouvement and no one more than Jules Verne. Jules Verne Museum If you have time for the coming summer and after having visited the docks where you can see the Great walking Elephant, I advise you to go up-hill to the Jules Verne Museum. 3 floors of this ancient mansion of the Saint-Anne hill dedicated to the fabulous writer. You will have that unique chance to (re-)discover his work through original editions of his books, facsimiles of old movie posters and of course models of the Nautilus.

This museum is worth the walk for its collection but also for the magnificient view on the river.
