in JUNIVILLE

Musée Verlaine

Verlaine traveled a lot, yet of all the places he frequented, few are still standing. Among these few buildings, only one is still intact and accessible to the public: the Auberge du Lion d'Or in Juniville.
Located opposite the house that Verlaine rented, not far from his farm, the Auberge has now become the Verlaine Museum. In this "box on foot and on horseback", the furniture has not moved, time has stood still and the soul has remained intact. 

Much more than a simple evocation of the poet, this place which extends over 1500m² will make you revisit his life and his work thanks to a unique iconographic collection, a quality commented visit, a provision of the complete work (prose , poetry and correspondence) and, of course, to this unique atmosphere that one feels as soon as you cross the threshold. 

After your visit, you will still have to discover the 1000m² of old garden, the temporary exhibitions and the bistro.

Open from 01/11 to 31/03: Thursday and Friday from 14 p.m. to 18 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 14 p.m. to 18 p.m.
Ouvert du 01/04 au 31/10 : mardi de 9h à 12h et de 14h à 18h, mercredi, jeudi et vendredi de 14h à 18h – samedi de 9h à 12h et de 14h à 18h


Individual guided tours 6 € | Groups 4 € (10 people) | Schools 2 € (teaching booklets on request).
