The most amazing museums in the world are in France. Filled with beauty and history, it goes without saying that you must take advantage of your time in Paris and try to explore as many museums as possible. There are all kinds of activities to keep your kids entertained while you explore the museums and take in the city’s rich history, art, and culture. The Van Gogh Starry Night Exhibition is a great place to take your children to experience large as life art that immerses you in Van Gogh’s numerous works of art. Or, take your kids to the Catacombs and experience the resting places of over six million people – a very spooky experience! Of course, no trip would be complete without a trip to the Louvre, where countless pieces of art (and a treasure hunt) wait to engage your family!
Another must visit are the extravagant castles that cover the landscape of France. Palaces such as Versailles and Vaux-Le-Vicomte are great destinations to spend a day outside of Paris. The grandiose décor and immense gardens are the perfect playground for any age to explore. These palaces are wonderful for full day adventures and night-time journeys alike, as both places have beautiful nighttime experiences, such as Chateau de Vaux-Le-Vicomte’s candlelit gardens or Versailles night light and water shows. These destinations are very easy to reach from Paris by bus, car, or train. Also, if you travel to both of these and need more, you are in luck because there are plenty more beautiful palaces to visit in France.
Much like the palaces, the parks are a beautiful spot to sit in the gardens, have a picnic, and attempt to wear out your energetic child. Explore the legendary Tuileries and Luxembourg Gardens where there are cute cafes in the summer where you can sit back and relax while your kids explore the various fountains and statues that are peppered throughout the grounds. Explore Les Buttes-Chaumont to enjoy the natural beauty of the park, or go to Bois de Boulogne where you can rent boats for the lake and bicycles to go through the trails. Enjoy a tranquil afternoon or take an adventurous hike through the park.
One more option is to take the hour train ride to Disneyland Paris. The two parks include the Hollywood Studios where kids can go to rock out on the Rock’n Roller Coaster, free fall in the Tower of Terror, spend the day in Fantasyland to travel through space on the Space Mountain, or float through the entire world in 5 minutes on the “It’s a Small World” boat ride. You and your kids can meet their favorite Disney characters and watch the exciting parade. With fun themed food and limitless possibilities, Disneyland Paris is sure to be a fan-favorite among your whole family.
