BIRTHPLACE OF VICTOR HUGO

The house where Victor Hugo was born is on the same square where Charles Nodier and the Lumière brothers were born and where Gustave Courbet lived. Its doors were opened to the public in 2013. Hugo’s battles and his commitments come alive through sets designed with the latest technology. No. 140, Grande Rue is the place to learn about and reflect upon the extraordinary heritage, both literary and political, that he left for us.
Objets d’art, some of them major, and some that belonged to him, are also on display. Ten years after the celebration of the bicentenary of his birth, the City of Besançon now has a permanent tribute to Victor Hugo.
