The home of Victor Hugo is a Parisian monographic museum, located at 6 Place des Vosges in the 4th arrondissement, which preserves the old Hotel de Rohan-Guemenee where Victor Hugo rented the second floor apartment for sixteen years, from 1832 to in 1848.

It is in 1832 that Victor Hugo left his family Rue Jean Goujon for an apartment of 280 m2 on the second floor of the Hotel de Rohan-Guemenee - Lavardin or hotel - it rents to its owner Ms. Péan Saint-Gilles through the son of the latter, the notary Bellanger. There are sixteen years of experience worldly, political and family life.

During his stay in these places, he gets his friends Lamartine, Alfred de Vigny, Alexandre Dumas, Honoré de Balzac, Prosper Mérimée or Sainte-Beuve, and saw the marriage of his daughter Léopoldine then the drama of Villequier in 1843.

The apartment inhabited by Victor Hugo, now restores his life over the three periods decisive: before the exile, during the exile from exile. The museum presents two exhibitions per year showcasing the works of the visionary designer collections and that was also Victor Hugo.
