UNUSUAL OR UNCLASSIFIABLE MUSEUMS

A brand new original museum in Paris: the Museum of Illusion (Halles district). Very appreciated by families the gourmet chocolate museum and thehe Museum of Magic and Automata. With children and teenagers, the inevitable Grévin museum In a completely different genre, the Catacombs of Paris (more with teenagers) or the music museum (at the music city)?

But we also have a soft spot for all the human-sized museums like the Picasso Museum, the Orangery or the Rodin Museum which are very pleasant to see with the family.

Without forgetting the science museums that will fascinate your children like the city of Science or the Great Gallery of Evolution which are in our top 5 Parisian museums to see with your family. For the little ones, the Musée en Herbe is a little wonder. Interactive, the works are exposed at the height of children.

The Children's City at the City of Science is the science museum especially for children, from 2 years old.the museums of Paris are open at night some evenings of the week (there are often fewer people). Finally, good to know: some Parisian museums are free  all year round and on the first Sunday of each month.
