Victor Hugo’s birthplace in Besançon

The world-famous writer Victor Hugo was born in the house at 140 Grande-Rue in Besançon on 26 February 1802.

Unlike the other houses where he lived, the birthplace of Victor Hugo is neither a museum nor a memorial. Using contemporary staging with a strong emphasis on multimedia exhibits, since it opened in September 2013, the Victor Hugo House has focused on presenting the battles fought by this deeply committed man.
