Things to Do in Paris with Kids

story by: House of Travel

Paris is a veritable playground for anybody who visits - children included. With so much on offer, here are a few ideas on how to keep the little ones busy in the City of Love.

Take a walk to the Jardin du Luxembourg 
The Jardin du Luxembourg is a fantastic place to while away a few hours, and is conveniently located in the city centre. 

Kids aged 7 to 12 years of age will love the playground and swings, while the puppet theatre is another popular attraction. Fun and education puppet shows take place on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 2 p.m., and even more often during the school holidays. 

There's also a creche, the opportunity for pony rides, plus model yachts to sail through the pond - so you'll never run out of activities. 

A trip up the Eiffel Tower
Heading up the Eiffel Tower is an obvious idea, but it's something everybody can enjoy. Take the lift and soar to great heights, or depending on the age of your little ones, have a go at climbing up the stairs. You'll take in wonderful sights from up top and the kids will want to see the city from every angle. You can take plenty of fun family snaps, identify landmarks around the city and enjoy looking through the telescopes that offer up-close views of various vantage points around Paris. 

Educational entertainment at the National Museum of Natural History
The National Museum of Natural History, or Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle, is a wonderful place for kids and adults alike. Explore the various, and often interactive exhibits, relating to nature, animals and geology.The Children's Gallery, aimed at kids between the ages of six and 12, is the perfect place for your young ones to spend a couple of hours. They'll get a hands-on experience of biodiversity, from discovering freshwater creatures to observing forest wildlife, flora and fauna. 

All in all, there's these ideas and plenty more for children and adults to cherish together in Paris - so get exploring!
