Discovering Paris as a family means visiting many theme parks offering a variety of fun and educational activities. It also means child-friendly museums, green spaces for revitalising oneself, as well as reception and food service facilities catering to young and old alike.
Of course there’s Disneyland Paris, the Thoiry or Vincennes Zoos and the Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie in the Parc de la Villette. There is also the Jardin d'Acclimatation or the Palais de la Découverte. But apart from these classics that are still very popular with families, many other Parisian attractions will interest younger visitors as well as older ones.
In Vitry-sur-Seine, you’ll find the Exploradôme, an interactive museum that allows children to learn about science, multimedia and sustainable development. In Fresne, the Playmobil FunPark will bring back a lot of memories. At the Grand Rex, you can learn about the cinema and what goes on behind the scenes. At the Jardin des Plantes, the Grande Galerie de l'Évolution will whet your curiosity. At the Porte des Lilas, the Dalle aux Chapiteaux will introduce you to the circus arts. And in the Opera district, the Paris-Story offers you a 75-minute multimedia discovery tour of Paris. Or maybe you prefer the LiLa Galerie for children (2nd arrondissement).
Afterwards, the Cafézoïde in la Villette would be a well-deserved stop. You’ll also find several restaurants who strive to spoil young diners: Messugues (17th arrondissement), les Petites Casseroles (14th arrondissement), les 400 coups (19th arrondissement), the brunch at the Aquarium de Paris (16th arrondissement), the Scopitone (18th arrondissement), and the many Hippopotamus restaurants in the Capital.
To make your life easier, you can choose from a variety of offers, such as 'Musées en liberté', the itineraries offered by 'Paris d'enfants' or 'VéloParis', family activities at the Louvre or the 'Musée en Herbe': it’s impossible to run out of ideas in Paris. The city invites you and knows how to fulfil the expectations of the whole family.
