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…

  1. 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).
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
