Do you have a budding genius at home? Head to Europe’s largest science museum, the City of Sciences and Industry in the Parc de la Villette or the Museum of Arts and Crafts, two Parisian locations dedicated to the great inventions that have marked the history of humankind.
If you’re planning an outing on the Champs-Elysées, consider the Palais de la Découverte (Palace of Discovery), a science museum which regularly presents exciting exhibitions for the whole family.
Some art museums are also ideal for visits with children. Your little ones will certainly love riding the escalators at the Centre Pompidou to admire the magnificent view over Paris or having a delightful shudder at the Egyptian mummies in the Louvre.

Can you tell true from false? Take the test by going to the Museum of Illusions, where you’ll be amazed by how the eye can be deceived, or the Grévin Museum, renowned for its many wax replicas of celebrities and figures from history.
Introduce your children to the beauty of the aquatic world at the Paris Aquarium, where they can encounter nearly forty sharks as well as many more denizens of the deep.
To end the day in style, surprise them with a visit to the Foire du Trône, a traditional funfair with some dizzying roller coaster rides.
