Every week, Sortiraparis editorial board scans every outing and good deal and selects five things to do in Paris on Wednesday with your kids! Here’s the program for February 21, 2018:
1- Discover the exhibitions running in the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie.
All year long, Paris Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie is full of playful and instructive exhibitions to be visited with your family. Here’s what’s currently happening.
2- Ateliers à la loupe, de Monet à Ai Weiwei at Musée en Herbe
From January 25 to September 9, 2018, Musée en Herbe offers us to discover “Ateliers à la loupe”, a retrospective on 40 paintings of artists and their portraits, created by the British-American artist, Damian Alwes. An exhibition-investigation that takes us straight to the fascinating and creative world of the greatest artists from the 19th century to nowadays.
3- Montparnasse Tower ice skating rink
From February 14 to March 6, 2018, the highest ice skating rink in Paris is back. Imagine, skating 210 meters above the ground with Paris in the background, exciting, isn’t it? With your beloved one or for the break, here’s an original and recreational outing. Little ecofriendly bonus: this ice skating rink is man-made!
4-Before the Incas
With its exhibition Before the Incas, the Musée du Quai Branly reveals the story of societies now forgotten which inhabited Peru and the Andes Mountains 1,500 years ago. Ceramic and wooden items, gold jewels, ornaments and emblems, over 300 objects are brought together to display the key influence Andean societies had on the following civilizations, including Incas.
5- A Thousand and One Orchids
From February 8 to March 5, 2018, Paris Jardin des Plantes exhibits its “Mille & une orchidées” [A Thousand and one orchids] again in its large greenhouses. Imagine, over 1000 plants of blossoming orchids, of a rare beauty and gathered in the wonderful tropical greenhouse of the Jardin des Plantes. A major exhibition for flower lovers!
