Maison Victor Hugo

-

On 26 February 1802, the house at 140 Grande Rue in Besançon was the birthplace of a world-famous writer, Victor Hugo.

Unlike the other houses where he lived, the Maison natale de Victor Hugo is neither a museum nor a place of memory. In a contemporary scenography that leaves a lot of room for multimedia, the struggles of this committed man are presented since the opening of the Maison Victor Hugo.

"Those who live are those who struggle", Les Châtiments, 1852
The ground floor of the museum's permanent exhibition evokes the links that Victor Hugo maintained with his native city. The staircase leading to the upper floor combines the chronology of 19th century French history with the key events in Victor Hugo's life. The four thematic areas on the first floor are devoted to Victor Hugo's commitments: poet, playwright, novelist, Victor Hugo was also a politician who transmitted his ideas and convictions through his actions, speeches and writings. A partnership with four international associations highlights the relevance of these struggles in the 21st century.
