The Museum of the Navy opens in Paris the year Jules Verne celebrating centenaire of his death.  This charming exhibition reports the universe of the navy at the time of Jules Verne, by detailing the scientific performances of the time parallel to creations of the Vernien universe.  An exhibition for curious and inventive spirits, rather disadvised to the too young children.  The route begins with the World Fair of 1867 organized to Champs de Mars, which attracted more than 11 million visitors.  At the time, an immense engine room and a sea water aquarium fascinated the visitors, of which Jules Verne himself.  Only some engravings and stereotypes restore the environment of these two attractions.  The visit continues with some original editions of Hetzel, of the manuscripts autographs, a small model of Nautilus, "scaphandres" of diving out of copper and diving-suits heavy. An authentic film in black and white of 1916, new document, shows the plungers of the time in action in the liquid world.  The end of the course evokes the great transatlantic crossings and the famous steamer Great Eastern, on which Jules Verne embarked, through photographs and paintings.  The masterpiece of the exhibition is the original manuscript of Twenty Thousand Miles under the Seas.
