The unmissable family exhibitions in Paris

With toddlers, 7/12 year olds and teens
Our selection of exhibitions of the moment, for children and teens in Paris. 
Our advice: buy your entrance tickets for exhibitions in advance to avoid long queues. It is essential for the very big Parisian exhibitions especially on weekends and even more during the school holidays. If possible, to avoid crowds, schedule your visit in the early evening (see our article on museums that make nightlife). And finally, think about permanent collections of museums. They often attract fewer people and yet are still very interesting.
