Unclassifiable or unusual museums

These are museums that are not quite like the others and do not fall into any category (science museums, museums on art or history museums ! Entertaining or educational, they are very popular with families and are an ideal outing on weekends or during school holidays. A human size, they are ideal with young children.
In Paris, there is of course the major "must-see" museums as the Louvre, the Orsay Museum for example. But we also find museums more confidential unusual, singular or fun. Often, these museums are particularly aimed at young audiences.
Other must-see museums with family and loved children the Aquarium of Paris in Trocadero,  the Tropical Aquarium from the Golden Gate or the museum of the Navy (reopening in 2021). Also note, the exciting little Fragonard museum (free) in the Opera district. And of course, the Museum in Grass, one of a kind, for children from the age of 3 years.
