Ideas for outings to the West of Paris

In the Hauts-de-Seine and Yvelines
The west of Paris is rich in proposals forfamily activities and outings. Among the ideas of cultural outingsyou will appreciate the National Archaeological Museum of Saint Germain en Laye (Famous for its department dedicated to prehistory) and you will have the choice among three castles. Indeed, you will be able to see not only the inevitable Castle of Versailles, but also the castle of Breteuil which puts the spotlight on Perrault's tales, or immerse yourself in the Empire period with the castle Malmaison at Rueil MalmaisonWest of Paris, children will also appreciate the amusement park France Miniature to discover in a fun way the French heritage and also the famous animal park of Thoiry. Unfortunately, for most of these outings in the west of Paris, it is necessary to have a car (except for visits to the castles of Versailles and Malmaison), but good news, it takes only about 1 hour of road. Good walk !
