5 programs to do in Paris with kids (besides Disney)

A lot of people don’t know, but the City of Love can also be Paris with children. I’m not just talking about Disney, which is super cool to do all day long. The truth is that there are numerous programs to be made with the little ones.

What to do in Paris with children


1) L’Aquarium de Paris

Glued to the Eiffel Tower, the Paris Aquarium makes the children happy.

There are more than 10,000 fish and invertebrates, sharks and other marine life. In all, there are 43 tanks and millions of liters of water in a 3,500 m² course.

There is also a swimming pool for children to cuddle fish and various other interactive activities.

Address: 5 Avenue Albert de Mun, 75016

Opening hours: Open Monday to Friday, 10am – 7pm

Tickets: Adults 20,50 € • Children (13 to 17 years old) 16 € • Children (03 to 12 years old) 13 €

2) National Museum of Natural History

The National Museum of Natural History is a French study institution composed of several galleries and other institutions. These include Grand Gallery of Evolution, Gallery of Mineralogy and Geology, Gallery of Paleontology and Comparative Anatomy, Garden of Plants and Museum of Man.

In the museum, you can see species’ evolution, living world diversity, extinct (or critically endangered) species and even dinosaur fossils and replicas. It’s a program for an entire afternoon!

Address: 36 Rue Geoffroy-Saint-Hilaire, 75005

Opening hours: Open daily except Tuesday, 10am – 6pm


3) Acclimatation Garden

Originally called Jardin Zoologique d’Acclimatation, the Garden of Acclimatation is a park full of options for fun and recreation. Space that extends over 19 hectares has a green area, several toys for children, a “mini” zoo with some species of animals and an excellent infrastructure, with bathrooms, banks, and restaurants. Nearby is the beautiful Louis Vuitton Foundation building that is also worth a visit.

Address: Bois de Boulogne, Rue du Bois de Boulogne, 75116

Opening hours: Open daily from 10am to 6pm


4) Parc Asterix

When I listen to Asterix, the first thing that comes to mind is the video game I LOVED as a child. Asterix actually emerged in a French comic book to tell the story of the Gallic people at the time of the Roman Empire. If we compare it, it’s a bit like the Monica Gang that was part of many childhoods and became a classic.

In the Disney style, there is a park outside Paris about this character, with numerous toys, attractions, and shows. I don’t know it yet, but my husband knows it well and said it’s worth it. So it’s a suggestion for you to come to Paris with kids. 😉

Address: Oise – Pays de France Natural Regional Park, 60128 – Plailly

Opening hours: Open daily from 10am to 6pm


5) Parc Floral

The Floral Park has been part of the Paris Botanical Garden since 1998. Inspired by Japanese parks, it is full of beautiful bonsai, plants, and flowers. Besides being a beautiful place, it has many activities for children, such as mini-golf with Parisian monuments, zip lines, ping-pong, slides, acrobatics, and swings. A tip: enjoy a nice picnic without that bunch of people around you.

Address: Parc Floral de Paris, Esplanade du Chateau de Vincennes, 75012

Opening hours: Open daily (Summer, 9:30 am to 8:00 pm • Winter, 9:30 am to 6:30 pm)

Tickets: Free *

* Between June and September, on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays, admission is € 5.50 for adults and 2.75 € for children over 7 years.

You probably noticed that I didn’t mention Disney, right ?! But that’s because, first, everyone remembers the park undoubtedly, and second, it will be the subject of an upcoming post.
