    The idea of ​​creating a museum of Victor Hugo belongs to his friend - Paul Meurice. Thus, he proposed to commemorate an outstanding writer on the eve of his century. Meris himself laid the foundation for future exposure, passing for this purpose personal collection.

    The museum opened on June 30, 1903 in the house where Victor Hugo lived from 1832 to 1848. The second floor of the former hotel horn-Gemini on the Place des Vosges writer occupy separate apartments. Here he lived with his beloved Adele Foucher.

    The building itself dates back to 1605 year, when Isaac Arno, an advisor to King, was allocated land for building houses. Later the house was rebuilt, he's got two balconies, which was not during the life of Hugo, and the look of it, unfortunately, has changed dramatically. However, the interior of the museum itself is very accurate. It collected a lot of personal belongings of the writer, including manuscripts, family portraits, first editions of his works. Few people know that Hugo had the talent and the artist - more than four sketched watercolor and to serve as an excellent pen confirmation.

    This museum has created a surprisingly warm atmosphere, which is not simply a textbook tells of a great writer, but also gives an idea of ​​his personality, with all its strengths and weaknesses.
