DÉCOUVREZ LES 14 MUSÉES DE LA VILLE DE PARIS
An exceptional location, now available for our professional partners. Overlooking one of the most iconic squares in Paris, the Place des Vosges, the Maison de Victor Hugo serves to preserve and promote the memory of this unique genius: a writer, poet, artist, decorator and political campaigner whose public commitments have transcended their historical context to remain deeply relevant models of moral activism for our time. The items and artefacts gathered together in the apartment where he lived from 1832 to 1848, the exhibitions exploring the uncannily contemporary resonance of his works, and the library and archives open to researchers and amateur enthusiasts, not to mention our special programmes of activities for schools and disabled visitors, will draw people of all ages and origins into the world of Victor Hugo. La Maison de Victor Hugo is also delighted to welcome companies who wish to organise conferences, seminars or receptions in these prestigious surroundings. By choosing to host your event with us your company becomes a partner of the museum, helping us to continue our work. (Gérard Audinet, Director of the Maison de Victor Hugo and Hauteville House.)
