Victor Hugo Museum-Maison Vacquerie

Interesting
In the former house of the Vacqueries, a rich family of Le Havre shipowners, the museum illustrates the life of Leopoldine Hugo. Letters from Leopoldine to her family, portraits and family furniture and views of Normandy of the day illustrate the peaceful times until her death on 4 September 1843. Apart from the Contemplations poems where Victor Hugo expresses his grief, there are also a number of drawings by the poet.
