  • The Contraires exhibition is designed as a village that includes 5 distinct spaces (the school, the bazaar, the house, the street, the park). During a stroll in this village, the children will discover contrasts and nuances through games, manipulations, films and interactive activities 
  • The ideal exhibition for toddlers
