Despite being a little too small, this museum is very adorable with adorable exhibitions. When i came there was just a few people, so me and my friend enjoy taking a lot of pictures and standing next to the artworks!

It's small (4 rooms) and you can see the expositon in less then one hour, but it's absolutely the cutest and most funny museum of Paris, and interesting for kids aged 4 - 100 !! The expositons are always very original and greatly put together....More

We visited the exhibition of Philippe Geluck that confronts his cartoon charachter Le Chat with some icons of our western art history. It is full of humor for both old and young, but short enough so you actually want for more. Do not forget to...More

Visited as my son has a project to do on Tintin. It was advertised that the exhibition had been extended by three months so maybe we were expecting too much. Very disappointing. Two rooms, one of which contained a history-line type presentation and Hergé's desk,...More

We had the best guide, Anne who introduced us to TinTin and the wonderful world of Hergé, his Creator. She was fun. She would relate to the children and at the same time kept us, adults, very interested. This museum combines real art with images...More

Our daughter attended the "atelier" for 2-5 year olds and she loved it. The museum also had a Tintin theme on display (I think this is temporary) that was very nice for old kids. There was also a small bookshop there. Overall, it's a small...More

This place is neither for children nor adults. One room museum: take 1 minute to visit. Price is 6 eur for adults and children... Avoid it.

This is a children museum. Very very very small. If you really dont know where to bring your kids while in Paris, and if your kids happen to speak French, you may consider this place. But there are many other better places to bring your...More

Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris,
Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but
the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it
houses the main shopping mall, which nestles
underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and
international restaurants coupled with beautiful
churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to
it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and
