Maison de Victor Hugo

Hôtel de Rohan-Guéménée - 6 place des Vosges - 75004 Paris

Le Marais - 4e Arrondissement


Situated in the prestigious Place de Vosges in the heart of the Marais district, the Maison de Victor Hugo invites visitors into the private home of the famous French writer, who lived on the second floor of the mansion from 1832 to 1848 and wrote some of his major works there, including a large part of 'Les Misérables'. Visiting this apartment, you can follow the three main stages of his life - before, during and after his exile to Guernsey - through a presentation of his furniture, various souvenirs and amazing interior design. The first floor is reserved for temporary exhibitions and presents his drawings, as well as illustrations of his literary works. The museum organizes conference visits in Victor Hugo's apartment and workshops for children (information at reception). A rich library is open to the public by appointment.
