Victor Hugo was 30 years old when he first moved in with his wife and children. The writer will stay more than 16 years in this 280m² apartment, located on the second floor of the Hôtel de Rohan-Guéménée, place des Vosges. That's where the author wrote some of his major works, such as "Ruy Blas" and a large part of the ". Miserable ".

From the living room to the dining room, including the bedrooms, discover the author's universe. In addition to the manuscripts, paintings and drawings signed Victor Hugo, the collections also include his family souvenirs (photographs, furniture and art objects) and creations in tribute to his work (illustrations of his books, sculptures…). The museum also organizes temporary exhibitions on the life and universe of the writer.

Thanks to the themed visits (all ages combined), children will have fun discovering what grandfather Victor Hugo was and what stupid things his grandchildren did, while teenagers will be invited to learn about photography or get to know the characters of "Notre Dame de Paris"…
