🦑: Rounding up this series on museum libraries with one of my personal favourites. The small town of Yverdon in Western Switzerland is home to the unique @maison_dailleurs , a museum dedicated to science fiction and fantasy. I never fail to visit whenever I’m traveling home, as their exhibits are always a lot of fun and very well done.
Occupying the town’s former “Casino” (what we used to call a community hall in the area), the Espace Jules Verne was built in 2008 to extend the museum’s space and to host the Margot collection of science-fiction novels. The room is of course named after the great French novelist and sci-fi pioneer Jules Verne, one of my favourite authors. Surely you can tell this is one of my happy places! Can you spot the Nautilus?
