Your kids will love this museum situated in the heart of Paris, just a stone’s throw from the vibrant Les Halles district and the Louvre! A lot of thought has gone into the layout and displays so that they can learn while having fun as they explore a series of exhibition-games and activities on artistic, scientific and civic themes. There is a year-round programme of exhibitions as well as creative workshops during which they can let their imagination run wild and express their artistic streak. The workshops are a chance for the children to put what they have learned in the exhibitions into practice.
And parents are usually astonished when they see the mini-masterpieces they have created!

The museum has been open for over forty years, hosting exhibitions on Victor Vasarely, Dali, Warhol, Matisse, Tintin and on graffiti. The themes are diverse and will appeal to all ages!
