Le Musee en Herbe for kids in Paris

Le Musee en Herbe for kids in Paris

Ever heard of le Musee en Herbe?

Le Musee en Herbe is a museum for kids and they absolutely love it. You can wander around the current exhibitions or take the kids on a guided tour including animations (they must be accompanied by an adult)

How about some of their workshops? Weekends, Wednesdays and many school holiday days. The kids will learn about the current exhibition – the artist and their work – and then be encourage to create their own art in the same style. This is very cool!

French Resistance and the Liberation of Paris

Fascinating museum of history.

I recently heard about a museum dedicated to the French Resistance and the Liberation of Paris near the Gare Montparnasse, which piqued my interest and whet my appetite.

“Accessoires et Objets, Témoignages de Vies de Femmes à Paris 1940-1944,” at the Musée Jean Moulin, on top of the Gare Montparnasse, is a fine demonstration of, to use a clichéd expression, the triumph of the human spirit in the darkest hours of World War II.
