Musée Victor Hugo

A journey into Victor Hugo’s life

This former shipping merchant’s home once belonged to Auguste Vacquerie, an ocean-going master mariner. His son Charles married Léopoldine, Victor Hugo’s daughter. Terribly, the Seine at Villequier caused a tragic accident for the two families. On 4 September 1843, Charles, Léopoldine and two other family members drowned here as a result of a river tidal wave. This terrible drama is evoked in the museum, along with its effect on Hugo and his work. The life of the Seine shipping merchant is also covered.

Designated an Accueil Vélo site, this place offers cyclists a warm welcome and facilities to enjoy a well-earned pause on the Seine à Vélo cycle route.
