The Musée en herbe left the Jardin d'acclimatation in 2009 for rue Hérold, in the centre of Paris.
Description
The museum is aimed at younger people in the hopes of making them more aware of and interested in art. With a touch of irreverence and a lot of humour, the Musée en Herbe makes culture more accessible by educating young people in an active and adapted way. Through play and humour, the museum develops children’s sensitivity, curiosity and creativity through artistic, scientific and civic themes, especially created for families.
Children under 12 come from all over to participate in various workshops at the Musée en Herbe, where you can put together ‘fish collages’ and create see-through paper flower stencils to put on the windows. Original and educational, both children and parents who are eager to make new discoveries enjoy these activities.
Temporary exhibitions and workshops provide younger people with knowledge of museum heritage.
