Victor Hugo’s house expects us from November 5, 2020 for its reopening. The museum was under renovations for over a year to refurbish the visit tour and provide visitors with a new experience.

Closed since April 15, 2019, the Maison de Victor Hugo (Victor Hugo’s House), place des Vosges in Paris, reopens in early June 2020. Refurbishing works have been carried out inside and in the museum’s courtyard. You can try the new tour with the “François-Auguste Biard, peintre voyageur” exhibition, running from November to March 2021.

Works carried out in Victor Hugo’s house enabled to changer the traffic way: to admire the permanent collections, visitors now have to use a new way. This tour takes you by renovated service stairs – among others – the very same stairs Victor Hugo climbed up and down when he wanted to go out and in discreetly.

One of the biggest innovations after the reopening of the museum is the refurbishment of the inner courtyard. This plant-lined courtyard now houses a café managed by maison Mulot, a brand always at the cutting edge of modernity, but always without forgetting pastry classics. This new fusion is likely to please you: the café is the perfect place for a sweet break between two stories about Victor Hugo’s life.

In 2020, several museums reopen to the public. Give a go to the Palais Galliera, the musée Cernuschi, the sewers museum and the Musée Carnavalet and enjoy brand-new visiting experiences!
