Some good ideas for children in Paris - they are sure not to get bored!

The Pompidou Centre

The Pompidou Centre no longer needs an introduction. It was commissioned by President Georges Pompidou, and designed in an original style by the architects Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers. The Beaubourg Museum was inaugurated in 1977.

The museum houses the most important collection of contemporary and modern paintings and sculptures in Europe. Likewise, special conferences and workshops are available to help the young public to discover and appreciate modern art and contemporary artists.
This is part of the museum's policy: to promote understanding and appreciation of modern art.

Musée des Arts décoratifs

The Museum was founded in Paris in 1882 by a group of collectionners who wished to promote Applied Fine Arts as links between industry and culture, production and creation. The museum comprises three sites in the Palais du Louvre :
1) The Arts décoratifs
2) The Fashion and Textile galery
3) The Advertising and Publicity galery
These galeries are housed in the Rohan and Marsan wings of the Louvre Palace.

Bernadette, Elliot and Alex mum:
Just wanted to say thank you for a great experience with the children. They had a wonderful time at the Louvre and at the baking class.  It was amazing what they learned about Egypt in such a short period of time.  As soon as we passed through Place de la Concorde, they were pointing at the Obelisk and in their Louvre books at home, they were talking to us about everything they saw in the Egypt section. A success!

MASTER PIECES OF THE LOUVRE

The Musée de l'Orangerie

The Musée de l'Orangerie, as its name indicates, was designed to shelter orange fruit trees in the « Tuileries Palace » greenhouse in 1852. This building has been used for many purposes over the years until the State endowed it to the Fine Arts Academy (Académie des Beaux Arts) in 1927.
Like the « Jeu de Paume », it was transformed into an annex of the Luxembourg Museum. Claude Monet created the famous « Nymphéas » (or Waterlilies) frescoes.

The museum staff is particularly motivated to reveal and describe this masterpiece to young people. Temporary exhibits can also be admired in other sections of the museum. They give specific conferences and supervise workshops adapted to the level and tastes of the young visitors.
