The 2023 All Saints' Day vacations are off to a great start , with an exceptional weekend to be enjoyed in France's monuments. Children and their parents are invited to Monuments Nationaux to take part in the latest edition of Monument Jeu d'Enfant, a fun way to learn more about our heritage.

At la Conciergerie, a weekend of activities and games awaits the youngest visitors, on Saturday October 21 and Sunday October 22, 2023. It's impossible to resist the call: the monument is steeped inhistory, as fascinating as it is beautiful. Built in the 10th century, the Conciergerie was part of the Palais de la Cité, the first residence of the kings of France until the end of the 14th century, before being transformed into a courthouse and then a prison for Queen Marie-Antoinette during the French Revolution.

The Conciergerie isn't the only one taking part in this event: the Sainte-Chapelle is joining forces with the former prison to offer special activities for our little ones. This Gothic church with its thousands of stained glass windows is waiting to reveal all its secrets. Visits are offered during this weekend of activities.

On the program for this family weekend at the Conciergerie and Sainte-Chapelle:

At the Sainte-Chapelle :

  • Tours of the Sainte-Chapelle for families.
    Ages 7 and up
    Saturday, October 21 and Sunday, October 22, 2023 from 10am to 12:30pm

At the Conciergerie:

  • Follow the line!
    Discover the Conciergerie from every angle, with workshops for children on architecture, graphic arts and color, as well as an unusual tour specially designed for the event. The afternoon concludes with Trait(s), a graphic circus performance by the SCoM company, featuring a circus artist on the Cyr wheel and a musician.
    Inspired by the works of Miro and Kandinsky, the artists set about creating a pictorial work using the Cyr wheel. As shapes and colors burst forth under the action of the apparatus, a work of art and movement is born before your very eyes. A show that will dazzle young and old alike!
    Saturday, October 21 and Sunday, October 22, 2023, 2pm to 5pm

Please note that reservations are strongly recommended, as visitor gauges are in place to ensure the best possible experience during this weekend, and the Conciergerie always attracts many curious visitors.
