  • Our grandson attended the city for children 5 years and he always returns with great pleasure. The two sections are very well made, the activities are varied and children can engage in without problems alone. It's fun, educational, interesting. There is worldwide, but to hand at the time of entry, and provided that there is no adult who resquillent the queue (happens unfortunately), then the children can romp.

  • We booked the activity for less than 12 at 10:30. Activities deserve 5 stars... but the number of tickets sold for the same meeting does not allow children to make half of the activities. Morality, we went with the session from 12:30... so by paying again. It is outrageous to sell more tickets, that there is no place for children.

  • This is the second time that we will have the city of children 2-7 years old but I can't find his very interesting my 5 year old son him to loved the site and my 18 month old daughter the games with balls & air and especially water games! the price is reasonable. I think I'll wait that he grow up to go discover the spaces of 5 - 12 years.

  • Loads to do. Very impressed with the industrial robots in the Usine part of cite des enfants (5-12). We spent over 8 hours there and could easily fill another day. Cafes are pretty good too, but if they're not to your liking, pop to the adjacent mall which has another handful of food outlets.
  • So much fun! Perfect rainy day activity. Each group has an hour and a half inside so the hands on activities aren't too crowded
  • Great place. Took my 4 year old and spent 4 hours doing the baby animal exhibit and the kids 2-4 area. Loved it.
  • Everything is done for kids. Learning by playing. Water, animals, construction, sounds etc. This is a must go place ! Two different areas : one for kids between 2 and 7. The second one for kids between 5 and 12
  • Super cool place for kids and adults alike. Different science activities available. I would suggest to take a combination ticket for activity+ geode+ submarine. A day well spent. Prices of toys in the boutique could have been a little lesser though.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
