Weather is not always predictable in Paris and it can often be difficult to find fun things to do with the kids on those rainy days. Here are some of our tips and tricks for making the most of your time here with the kids when the weather is not its best:
Paris is filled with great indoor activities for all interests and age levels. At the Musee de la Magiein the Marais,kids are taken on an interactive tour through the history of magic or pop into the Cine Aqua Aquarium just across the river from the Eiffel Tower where you can explore the world under the sea.
The Louvre is the largest museum in the world and can be great fun for kids and the whole family. Instead of just visiting the Louvre, why not go on a family scavenger hunt throughout the museum with THATLou? THATLou stands for Treasure Hunt At The Louvre and your kids have never had so much fun in a museum! Divide the family and/or friends into teams and race through the Louvre looking for paintings or sculptures.
There are some great hands-on spots where kids can interact with the exhibits and learn while they play. The Musee en Herbe in the 1st arrondissement and the Cité des Sciences and Cité des Enfants on the northern end of Parc la Villette are two of these options. Le Centquatrein the 19th is part museum for adults and part construction site for young children – fun for everyone!
