At the Musée Guimet
For children aged 7 to 14
storytelling visit to 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 a little more disgusting than others [obviously the ones children prefer ]. Our guide will then explain the two main religions that originated on the Indian continent and are still practiced in 21st century Asia: 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.

My 9-year-old daughter and 13-year-old son really enjoyed the visit. All three of us learned a lot about Hinduism. Many thanks to our guide Cyril, who knows how to captivate young and old alike.
