It's the cultural highlight of the second weekend of June 2024: the Musée Cognacq-Jay is offering a free weekend for families and children, with tours and a puppet show on the program!

Free museum weekends for the whole family are the perfect way to enjoy a cultural outing with the kids, without spending your monthly budget on workshops and admission tickets. Following on from the Palais Galliera, Musée Bourdelle, Petit Palais and Musée Cernuschi, the Musée Cognacq-Jay, in the 3rd arrondissement, is now offering a free weekend for families on Saturday June 15 and Sunday June 16, 2024.

What's on the program? Fun tours, a puppet show and workshops for a weekend specially designed for children and their parents (or uncles, aunties, grandparents). The great thing about this event is that it's open to all, with no need to book, and above all, admission and entertainment are completely free for the whole family!

The Musée Cognacq-Jay 's permanent collections include an entire collection of 18th-century works and objets d'art from the legacy of Ernest Cognacq, a Parisian merchant who founded, among other things, the Samaritaine department stores in Paris. How about discovering this cultural landmark on the weekend of June 15 and 16, 2024?
