What to do in Paris with children?

Visiting Paris with your family can be a fantastic experience providing that you choose an adapted program. Here are some recommendations from the Esprit de France hotels to make a success of your visit with children.

The Louvre Museum

Paris 1st - Metro : Palais Royal - Musée du Louvre

The Louvre Museum is a must-do, but a visit of this massive museum can be tiring for children. This is why it is important to select specific sections that can be enjoyed by a young public. The section featuring Egyptian Art is a very good choice, offering a compromise between art and civilization. The museum organizes 90 minutes guided tours during which the speaker adapts his presentation to his audience. You can also opt for family tours taking place on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

The Musée du Quai Branly

Paris 7th - Metro : Alma - Marceau

Situated near the Eiffel Tower, (which is also worth a visit, but it is imperative to pre-book your tour), the Musée du Quai Branly is dedicated to primitive arts and offers several activities specially designed for children and families. 90 minutes narrated visits, workshops (magic objects, African masks, puppets) and itineraries during which children and adults help a guide solve riddles linked to objects from four continents, many activities to learn art in a entertaining way.

The City of Sciences and Industry

Paris 19th - Metro : Porte de la Vilette

The City of Sciences and Industry in la Villette is dedicated to the initiation of children to sciences and techniques through an interactive discovering of exhibition spaces. The “Cité” offers a wide range of activities (movies, exhibitions, Explora workshops, library…), which are edutainment and suitable for children from 2 to 12 years old.

A cruise on the River Seine

A cruise on the River Seineis a must-do that will leave children and adults with unforgettable memories.
