    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.

    Arrived for the first session of the morning, the children were able to enjoy the different universe proposed, the only small problem is the world which does not allow some children to do everything: 1.30 is granted, it is a bit short. Bravo for the variety of activities. Only the "Garden" area is not at the level of the other universe.

    The activities are fun, educational and schoolchildren. We went to the meeting from 14:30, and there was much too much of children. The number of child did not really enjoy each activity. There are places where there is that 2 piece proposed for activities (given the right animal on the right tracks etc.) except that when there are 20 children on a same space and as there are little parts and more from piece missing c is complicated!

    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.
