Musée en Herbe information
One of the city’s great backstreet secrets, this children’s museum – which moved to a new, larger locale in 2016 – is a surprise gem for art lovers of every age, not just kids. Its permanent exhibition changes throughout the year and focuses on the work of one artist or theme through a series of interactive displays.
Captions are in English as well as French, children get a jeu de piste (activity sheet) to guide and entertain, and additional workshops and guided visits for kids and adults – think hands-on art workshops, afternoon tea, early-evening aperitifs and so on (€6 to €10, reserve in advance) – add to the playful experience.
