Our Insiders' Article

Disneyland

If you are coming to Paris for a few days with family, it is impossible to pass up a visit to Disneyland Paris, at least for a day. The kingdom of Mickey Mouse and his friends will bring the utmost joy to your kids. The park has 2 sites: Disneyland and Disney Studios. If you only have one day, Disneyland is your best bet.

How to make the best of it: Reserve your tickets online, and avoid school vacations and weekends so you don’t waste too much time waiting in lines for each ride.

Practical information:

  • Marne la Vallée. Accessible by the RER A.
  • Open every day from 8 AM to 7 PM
  • Price: 39 to 209 euros

Zoo de Vincennes

After being closed for many years for renovations, it was in April 2014 that the Zoo de Vincennes finally reopened its doors. Modern and pleasant, the zoo is divided into 5 “biozones,” recreating the natural environments of the animals present. Guaranteed to entertain and amaze the kids.

How to make the best of it: Reserve your tickets online, and avoid school vacations and weekends so you don’t waste too much time waiting to get in.

Practical information:

  • Avenue Daumesnil – Route de la Ceinture du Lac, 12th arrondissement
  • Open every day from 10 AM to 5 PM
  • Price: 22 euros

Fairground Arts and Magic

There are two very magical museums in Paris that allow kids and parents alike to dream. The Museum of Fairground Arts displays old attractions from fairs from the beginning of the 20th century. Visits are possible only by appointment and the carousels are still in order. The Museum of Magic (and the neighboring Museum of Automatons), located in a series of 16th century vaulted cellars of the Marais, aims to promote, develop, and safeguard the art of magic through objects, illusions, and magic shows.

How to make the best of it: The museum of magic is the perfect accompaniment to a walk in the Marais.

Practical information:

  • Museum of Fairground Arts: 53 Avenue des Terroirs de France, 12th arrondissement, visits by appointment only. There are generally 4 1.5-hour visits (11 AM/2 PM/2:30PM/4 PM) each day.
  • Museum of Magic: 11 Rue Saint-Paul, 4th arrondissement, open from 10:30 AM to 7 PM during the week and from 2 PM to 7 PM during the weekend. Price: 9 euros (or 12 for a combined ticket to the Museum of Automatons)

Luxembourg

There are many fascinating parks in Paris, but if we were to pick one for kids, it would be the Jardin de Luxembourg (Luxembourg Gardens). In fact, it was Napoleon Bonaparte himself who wanted to create a garden dedicated to children. Today, the Jardin de Luxembourg is host to a puppet theater and large spaces for children to play, and rents out wooden boat models to float in the park fountains during the summer. The history and the beauty of the park are sure to enchant parents as well.

How to make the best of it: In the summer, do it like the Parisians: Grab a sandwich from one of the bakeries in the area and have a little picnic in the park. A winner!

Practical information:

  • 50 Rue de Medicis, 6th arrondissement
  • Open every day from 8:15 AM to 4:45 PM in winter, and later in the summer
  • Price: Free, but certain activities will cost money

cité des sciences

Certain sciences are, by nature, fascinating. Optical illusions or astronomy naturally interest both kids and adults. But thanks to the genius of the designers of the City of Science and Industry, all the sciences (even math!) are a real pleasure and oasis for the kids to discover. Be prepared to spend a long time there, as your kids won’t want to leave any time soon!

How to make the best of it: Your entry ticket is valid all day. Don’t hesitate to step out for lunch and come back in the afternoon. Avoid weekends and holidays to avoid the crowd.

Practical information:

  • 30 Avenue Corentin Cariou, 19th arrondissement
  • Open every day from 10 AM to 6 PM except Mondays (closed)
  • Price: 9 euros for adults, 7 Euros for kids under 25 and free for kids under 6 (not including temporary exhibitions and IMAX theater)

Aquarium

It is hard to enter the aquarium of Paris and not be perplexed by the number of fish that can be found there. Spectators are plunged into the darkness, making the experience that much more intimate and striking. Need we say more? Here is a spot that will enchant both kids and parents.

How to make the best of it: To enjoy the place without being disturbed by students so you can feel “closer” to the fish, go during lunchtime or 2 hours before closing time.

Practical information:

  • 5 Avenue Albert de Mun, 16th arrondissement
  • Open every day from 10 AM to 7 PM
  • Price: 20.50 euros for adults, and 13 euros for kids

Natural History

If there is one discipline that peaks the curiosity and admiration of kids, it is paleontology. However, the term that appeals more to kids would be: dinosaurs! But the Museum of Natural History does not end at the Gallery of Paleontology. It also includes the Great Gallery of Evolution (taxidermy animals in a magnificent structure), the Menagerie (a zoo that dates back to 1793), and the Grandes Serres (Great Greenhouses). All of these surround the Jardin des Plantes (Botanical Gardens), itself equipped with plenty of space for children to play.

How to make the best of it: There are many school trips to this establishment, so for a bit more privacy, make a trip during lunchtime or at the end of the day.

Practical information:

  • 36 Rue Geoffroy-Saint Hilaire, 5th arrondissement
  • Open every day from 10 AM to 6 PM except Tuesdays and holidays (closed).
  • Price: 7 euros for the Great Gallery of Evolution, 7 euros for the Gallery of Paleontology, 11 euros for the Menagerie, and 6 euros for the Grandes Serres

Musée en Herbe

Are you one of those who think that contemporary art is inaccessible and off-limits to kids? You would be wrong. The Musée en Herbe, dedicated to kids, allows a fun and educational introduction to contemporary art. Artists like Spoerri, Christo, or Arman are revisited by way of fun and entertaining games.

How to make the best of it: For visits with a director, you must make a reservation at least a week in advance. (01 40 67 97 66 or [email protected])

Practical information:

  • 21 rue Hérold, 1st arrondissement
  • Open every day from 10 AM to 7 PM
  • Price: 6 euros per person for an unguided visit (10 euros for kids/6 euros for adults for a guided visit)

Jardin d'Acclimatation

In Paris, there are two large woods: the Bois de Boulogne and the Bois de Vincennes. In each of the two woods, there are activities for children. The Jardin d’Acclimatation in the Bois de Boulogne contains a small zoo and carousels and other similar rides. Different, but just as amusing for kids, is the educational farm of Georges-Ville located in the Bois de Vincennes. It is well known that life on the farm always has a great impact on kids!

How to make the best of it: The Jardin d’Acclimatation can be found just next to the Fondation Louis Vuitton. Enjoy a discovery of this museum and cultural center. To the east, the Chateau de Vincennes is also worth a short visit.

Practical information:

  • Jardin d’Acclimatation: Bois de Boulogne, open every day from 10 AM to 6 PM (7 PM in the summer), 3 euro entry
  • Georges-Ville farm: Bois de Vincennes, open only on the weekends from 1:30 PM to 5:30 PM. Free entry.

Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower is a major classic of the Parisian tourist circuit. Its history, its architecture, and its aura cannot be ignored…even by kids. What child wouldn’t dream of being at the top of Paris? And because the pier of the Bateaux Parisiens can be found right at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, they are a perfect combination. Opt for the dinner cruise at 6 PM, which lasts an hour and a half, the perfect length so as to not bore the kids.

How to make the best of it: Buy tickets in advance for both the Eiffel Tower and the cruise. With kids, set aside about 2 hours for visiting the Eiffel Tower.

Practical information:

  • Eiffel Tower: 5 Avenue Anatole France, 7th arrondissement, open every day from 9:30 AM to 11 PM, 15.50 euros (to the Summit)
  • Dinner cruise: Les Bateaux Parisiens, Quai de la Bourdonnais, every day at 6 PM, starting from 69 euros per person
