A journey through the centuries

A 360° tour around the destiny of Victor Hugo

A 360° videomapping will allow you to immerse yourself in the life of the writer Victor Hugo, until September 3, 2023. The Cité de l'Histoire offers a visual and sound show written by the director of the place and historian Franck Ferrand.
