The majority of the large French museums have programmes for children: special activities, guided visits and educational workshops. Children from the age of two can have fun discovering and trying different things in the Palais de la Découverte (Palace of Discovery) and the Cité des sciences et de l’industrie (Science and Industry City) which has a Cité des enfants (City for Children). In addition to the Galerie des enfants (Children’s Gallery), the Centre Pompidou has created an area for teenagers, Studio 13/16, with free programmes for children aged between 13 and 16.
National museums and monuments are free for young people under 18 years of age. For the 18-25 age bracket, access to permanent collections is free. Admission to museums and national monuments is free for everybody (excluding peak season for some of them) on the first Sunday of every month. The permanent collections in the museums of the City of Paris are also free for all visitors. Events such as la Nuit des musées and les Nuits Blanches are free in order to enable everybody to have access to culture.
Furthermore, special events are organised for children such as the “Oh My Code!” festival at Little Villette (a location dedicated to children) or Les Enfants d'abord (Children Come First). A special website dedicated to children, Parismomes.fr, lists all children’s activities in the capital.
