Temporary closure of all exhibitions for an indefinite period of time,

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.

Paris is one of the cities in the world that presents most temporary exhibitions, thanks in particular to the quality of its museums. These exhibitions are internationally renownedwhich explains the enthusiasm of the public for them.
It is therefore highly recommended  to reserve as soon as possible to avoid long queues with children.
Exhibitions are usually in French and Englishsometimes also in Spanish.
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. This is still the case for the Museum in GrassThis one is specifically for children from the age of 3.  The Petite Galerie of the Louvre Museum is another place specially designed for the young public. These two establishments organise two to three different exhibitions a year for the young public.
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!
Good visit !
