The most beautiful art museums in Paris and Ile-de-France

Take your children to discover the museums of paintings and sculptures
Paris is fortunate to have many of the finest art museums in the world. There is of course the Louvre museum, the Pompidou center or the Orsay museum to name the most important ones, but there are also great museums like the museum of decorative arts and the museum of modern art or among the smaller ones the Rodin museum or the museum of arts of the Orangery. The list of Parisian art museums is long and there are some for all tastes and all publics
Parisian museums are bursting with imagination to attract families and make museums accessible to all, especially the youngest. Self-guided or guided tours, children's or family workshops, game booklets, conferences... l
Many art museums are free for children under 18 (under 26 years old if you are a European Union citizen)and some museums are free for all on the 1st Sunday of each month.
Children love to be told stories, passionate and exciting. Sign up for a family museum tour Paris such as "Monsters and Heroes of Mythology in the Louvre", "Egypt after death", Egypt at the time of the Pharaohs" or the visit "Like Princes" at the Jacquemart André museum.
