Jules Verne document centre

Although originally from Nantes, Jules Verne (1828-1905) spent much of his life in Amiens, where he wrote Around the World in 80 Days. He was even a city councillor. His residence, known as the "House with the Tower", now contains a considerable body of documents about his life and work.
