We love our children. That’s a fact. But love is sometimes not enough and traveling with them often needs some kind of extra preparation. Don’t worry, Paris has a lot to offer the children, and just because paintings or architecture bore them doesn’t mean they won’t like visiting the Louvre Museum, in the same way walking tours can be cool when the guides are great. But let me give you a few tips of the places you should go to make your children enjoy their stay as much as possible in Paris. Here’s our list of things to do in Paris with children.

Things to do in Paris with children

Paris with kids

There are many museums in Paris designed for children. They propose special visits for them and lots of things to do in Paris. The most famous one is in my opinion, the Parc de la Villette. Situated in the north-east of Paris, there are some exhibitions about science and industry there. These exhibitions are always really fun and interesting for children and of course 100% safe.

What’s more, there is also a big park around the museum with many activities. Planning to spend a day there with your kids can be a really great idea for them. But this is not the only one. There is the Palais de la Découverte just in the center of Paris, or the Museum National d’Histoire naturelle, where you’ll be able to observe a lot of animals from all around the world.

Another idea of what to do with children would be to walk around in the streets, or even better, in some parks. A famous park is the Luxembourg, situated just in the middle of the Quartier Latin. You’ll find there some tennis courts, a lake where all the Parisian children have once sailed some toy boats, and green grass to make a picnic.

There is also a brand new activity for families that opened only a few months ago. The mayor of Paris decided to close a part of the Seine banks and design it for families. You’ll find there a lot of small activities, shows, and banks to enjoy the sight of the Seine. All Parisians are quite excited about this new place, because it really is a success, and it is perfect to spend some good time with your children.

And don’t forget, if you’re in Paris in summer, there is Paris Plage where almost a third of the Seine banks get designed as a beach. Perfect for spending some good time with your children, while pretending to be enjoying a good time at the sea!

Have a nice stay!
