Although none of the exhibits are labeled in English the audio guide explains well the story of Jean de la FONTAINE.
The house which was where he was born is beautiful and has a small garden nicely maintained
None of his furniture or possessions have survived (I suppose because he died penniless) but there are many many different versions of his books and the artwork which illustrated the fables
Very reasonable to get in
In the winter at least maybe not in the summer it closes for lunch however with the exception of a few Bank Holidays it is open every day of the year

Had heard of Jean De La Fontaine but had only read one of his poems.
Visiting this museum which was his home at one point was really great.
To see the painting that were done to 'tell' the story of some of his poems was great.
Also seeing his actual writings was a pleasure.
The thing that made this visit so good was our guide. Without him I don't think I would have learned even half of what I did.

Thank Tomapa
