A museum on a child's scale

The Jean Sans Peur tower is one of the best kept medieval secrets in Paris! Indeed, this ancient fortification tower built in Paris in the 15th century by Duke John I of Burgundy, is now converted into a child-sized museum. The visit of the tower Jean sans Peur is the occasion toa short and instructive dive into the world of the Middle Ages. The permanent collection and temporary exhibitions very lively present the history, the architecture and the life of the society at the time of John the Fearless.

  • a snack in the small garden

  • a short visit which allows very well understand life in the Middle Ages;
  • staff availability at the reception for chat with children after the visit;
