This museum is in a beautiful house overlooking the Loire River.  It would be perfect if this was a house Verne had lived in, but it's not the case, he was born in Nantes though.  The 19th Century mansion has been renovated into a museum to display his once possessions and other artefacts relating to his life and times.  One of the rooms has been decorated with the furniture from his own drawing room though, his chairs, table and clock and some of the china he was given by foreign journalists – apparently that was his 'goody bag' of choice.  

There's a small entry fee, but if you visit on the first Sunday of the month you'll get in for free.
