15 exhibitions to discover with children in Paris

Museums are not just for grown-ups! Yes, there is no age to appreciate art: the proof is in these exhibitions that will delight children and their parents/guardians/grandparents, in Paris and the Ile-de-France region.

Children are curious, passionate and creative little creatures, always ready to discover new worlds: Paris museums and galleries have understood this well, with the many family exhibitions that open every season. Playful, interactive and creative, they enable the little ones to touch, listen, experiment and (more often than not) live a real experience in the heart of Parisian cultural venues.

Whether with Mum, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa or Auntie, on Wednesday afternoons, during school vacations or at weekends: kid-friendly exhibitions let you spend some fun family time with the little ones, who often don't get what they want from the permanent collections or standard temporary exhibitions, which are too serious and not interactive enough. For toddlers (including babies under 2) as well as older children (and sometimes pre-teens and teens), these unusual exhibitions are a must! And most of the time, admission for under-25s is free!

So, here's our selection of the most eagerly awaited family exhibitions of the moment!
