Victor Hugo did not actually live in this building, the former Hôtel Rohan-Guéméné; and all his furniture was sold when he was banished in 1851. Nevertheless, the museum exhibits many worthwhile mementos of the master, including portraits, busts (there’s one by Rodin), a romantic and masterful portrait of Juliette Drouet by Champmartin, Hugo’s architectural sketches pertaining to his Hauteville House in Guernesey, and his dreamy collection of travel drawings from the Rhine River Valley, Switzerland, Belgium and France. There are 350 of these in all, each one more bizarre and fascinating than the next. Recent acquisitions include numerous family portraits and manuscripts.
