Paris and its museums: it is difficult to choose because of the richness of the cultural offer. Indeed, there are more than 200 museums in Paris, as choose a top of the Parisian museums is not obvious. Nevertheless, it is certain that  the Louvre, the Musée d'Orsay or the Centre Pompidou are among the most beautiful museums in the world and the must-see museums in Paris. But we also have a soft spot for all the human-sized museums like the Picasso Museum, Orangerie 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 toddlers, the Musée en Herbe is a little wonder. Interactive, the works are exposed at the height of children. It is a museum in Paris that we love and that is in our top of the must-see museums for kids.  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.
