Ideas for family outings in the west of Paris

Hauts-de-Seine (92) and Yvelines (78)

The west of Paris is rich in proposals for a variety of activities.family activities and outings. Among the ideas for cultural outings: the national archaeology museum in Saint Germain en Laye (famous for its department devoted to prehistory), three castles, including the unmissable Château de Versailles.
We love the France Miniature theme park to discover the French heritage in a playful way.

Our favorites in the departments of 78 and 92 :

  1. France Miniature (in the category "Amusement park")
  2. The Palace of Versailles (in the category 'The Tops not to be missed")
  3. Thoiry Safari Zoo (in the category "Animals")
  4. The storytelling tour "The Great Hours of the Gardens of Versailles". (in the category "Guided tours")
  5. Pop Corn Labyrinth (an XXL maze in a 4 hectare corn field)
