Pitch of the playful visit "Excursion in Hindu territory at the Guimet Museum

Brahma the creator, Shiva multitasking, Vishnu and its avatars, Ganesh with elephant head... a whole world of fantastic creatures to tame.

Let's go for a an initiatory journey into the Hindu pantheon through different sculptures to find thanks to the clues of our guide, your children will discover the great Hindu gods, their powers and their attributes.

The visit begins with a presentation of the founding myths and the story of several legendsSome of them are a bit more disgusting than the others [obviously those that the children prefer :)]. Our guide will then explain to them the two main religions born on the Indian continent and still practiced in the Asia of the XXIst century : Hinduism then Buddhism.

Awakened to a way of thinking so different from ours, children are literally taken on board during this playful discovery tour in the "India and the Indianized world" section of the museum Guimet.

It's a playful and storytelling visit: there are things to look for and stories to tell! This tour is led by a guide who is a professor of Asian art at the Louvre School and a specialist in young people.

After the visit, if the weather is good, you can go and stretch your legs in the beautiful square of the Palais Galliera, a Garuda's wing's length away from the Guimet Museum.
