In Vitry-sur-Seine, in the Val-de-Marne département of France, the Musée d'art contemporain has a reputation for being particularly family-friendly. A promise that the cultural center is keeping once again with its Pouce festival, on the weekend of December 2 and 3, 2023.

On Saturday December 2 and Sunday December 3, 2023, bring the whole family (and the kids) to MAC VAL, the contemporary art museum in Val-de-Marne (94), for the Festival Pouce, a free event open to all.

For its very first edition, the Festival Pouce looks promising, with a free program designed for young and old alike, from 0 to 100 years old. So, for the duration of a weekend, one of the region's leading contemporary art museums is transformed into a veritable playground for discovering, visiting and experiencing contemporary art with the whole family.

On the program, then, are sensitive strolls to discover the museum's collections in an original way, creative workshops around the temporary exhibitions of the moment, family shows and even astonishing video screenings in the museum's cinema.

Even if you're not a big fan of contemporary art, the MAC VAL offers something for everyone, with special tours of temporary exhibitions and permanent collections, as well as many other fun activities! For a family outing to the museum (free for all), head for the Festival Pouce, at MAC VAL, on Saturday December 2 and Sunday December 3, 2023!
