The exhibitions to see with your family 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.

Very often, Around the exhibitions, workshops are offered to the young public, for children alone, guided family tours, family workshops, game booklets, etc..
Sometimes Some exhibits are designed specifically for children.

obviously the city of Science, the Museum of Natural History and the Palace of Discovery always organise exhibitions for young people, sometimes for the very young as is currently the case at the Cité des Sciences with the exhibition Cabanessometimes more for teenagers (Spy exhibition for example).
As you can see, it's hard not to find a theme that interests your children!
