Cité des enfants 2-7 years

Hooray, adventure again!

Games, experiments, discoveries...The favourite adventure playground for 2-12 year-olds is back!

Note, in the Cité des enfants, the "building site" and the "water games" are still temporarily closed. In exchange, your age 2-7 ticket lets you in free of charge to the Explora exhibitions (except for the optional temporary exhibitions).
Please accept our apologies and thank you for your understanding.

The permanent exhibition, now open to children ages 2 to 7, is a special place for adults too. For the greater enjoyment of children, this unique space for actively experimenting and exploring offers a series of fun and educational activities divided into five thematic areas:

  • I discover myself
  • I can do
  • I locate myself
  • I experiment
  • All together


The three major themes focus on the development of the child and their physical, cognitive and spatial skills. Your child can test their flexibility and their senses, watch themselves in the mirrors, listen to their emotions, play with balance, sounds and letters, and explore pathways and mazes, setting their body in motion.

The following two themes provide an opening to the world and to others. Your child watches, plays and experiments with physical phenomena: water, air and light. They work with other children to build a house or participate in a collective performance of a circus act.
