Frank Gehry, the architect behind this new Parisian gem, might just transform our children’s perception of museums. A visit to the Fondation Louis Vuitton is like a journey through a maze, its interconnected routes captivating the attention of even the smallest guests. Enjoy its exhibits on weekends or holidays, and have some light-hearted fun with the whole family…
- The queue is nothing like those of other exhibitions in Paris. And if you like to plan a bit in advance, you can even book your tickets online (as late as the day before your visit).
- Children can explore the museum with an iPad in hand – their favorite toy – and for once, it’s not yours…
The Fondation lends its tablets to guests, allowing them to explore the exhibitions further through the “Archi Moi”app – a brilliant idea for parents who want to peacefully enjoy the museum. The app is designed for 8-12-year-olds, and can be found on the App Store in both French and English.If you’re coming with even littler ones, accompany them on a narrated tour in which their guide is a little alien who walks them through the various rooms and exhibits. They’ll also love the chance to admire Paris and the Eiffel Tower from atop the Fondation.
Narrated tour – from 10:30am-12pm and 3pm-4:30pm, 2€ / person in addition to the ticket cost.
- You can head straight to the Jardin d’Acclimatation after your visit.
The fun continues outside, where little tourists can stretch their legs, enjoy some rides and even have a gourmet snack from Angelina’s.
Entrance to the Jardin d’Acclimatation included in ticket price.
