The "Cathedral times" fun tour

At the Cité de l'Architecture et du Patrimoine

Cathedrals are so tall, so big, so dizzying that it's hard to admire their architectural details... At the Cité de l'Architecture, you'll have a front-row seat! On this tour, parents and children will discover the wonders of religious architecture.

The tour guide - medieval specialist - will explain, among other things, why Gothic cathedrals are so exceptional, and how we moved from Romanesque to Gothic art.

It's a participative visit and the children will be put to work looking for that detail, that scene...

With the help of the guidebook, put themselves in the shoes of medieval workers and masons and discover all architectural secrets of that era. They will hear crisp, entertaining stories.

Star Star Star Star Star - Nice visit
Written by martine LECRU, 16-02-2024

Perhaps a little too technical for my 10-year-old daughter. But she kept up and was very attentive and concentrated. The guide kept their attention by looking at them and challenging them. I'm completely satisfied.

My grandchildren, aged 12 and 14, and I were very interested in this visit. The speaker held the attention of the children and teenagers for 1h30. Very good visit.

Star Star Star Star Star - Cyril is a fantastic guide
Written by Natacha Postel-Vinay, 07-11-2023

Your lecturer Cyril is simply excellent, you're lucky to have him and he should be congratulated (sorry for the lack of accents). My son had just turned 7 and despite his lively mind and interest in architectural details (he loves drawing) we wondered if he would get bored. In reality, Cyril was so pedagogical, interesting and clear that my son was never bored (even if he probably couldn't understand absolutely everything, which is normal at 7). As adults, my husband, my mother and I also learned a lot. You have a gem among your guides!
