La Maison de Balzac is a pavilion housing a museum dedicated to Honoré de Balzac, located at 47 rue Raynouard and 24 rue Berton, in the 16th arrondissement of Paris.

In the nineteenth century, Honoré de Balzac lived from 1840 to 1847 in this house at Passy, under a pseudonym, to escape his creditors.

The lodge itself has been classified as a historical monument by a decree of May 3, 1913, and the land that is part of his garden were scored by a decree of March 13, 1944.

Currently, there are records of the author, manuscripts, autograph letters, rare editions, some traces of his eccentricities like the famous turquoise cane, and coffee with the initials "HB".
