Paris has so many cultural venues to visit, neighbourhoods to explore and gardens to relax in that it can be hard to decide where to go. But some places are guaranteed to provide a fantastic day out for kids.

In Paris, certain theme parks are still a sure bet for entertaining children, such as Disneyland Paris, which offers original rides for little dreamers, or Parc Astérix.

The French capital also has its fair share of iconic kid-friendly museums. The whole family will enjoy the fascinating exhibitions at the Palais de la Découverte, the Cité des Enfants at La Villette, or at the Science Expériences. The Musée Grévin makes for an entertaining afternoon outing. Budding artists will be in their element at the Musée en Herbe, where exhibitions are designed to appeal to children, even tiny tots. The Musée de l’Homme retraces the history of human evolution in ways that are both instructing and entertaining.

And, in fine weather, there are some lovely places to go for a walk with the family. There’s the Parc Zoologique de Paris, with its lush expanses of green or the Bois de Boulogne with a lot of activities for children. Another very pleasant way to explore Paris is to go on a cruise on the Seine.
