Since the Louvre is fast becoming the preeminent museum across Europe, the museum enchants many visitors in groups to the Parisian district even today. Still, going on a private Louvre museum tour with your little ones may seem a hectic task especially when in peak touring seasons.
The Louvre stays abuzz with peering visitors and your kids may get restless when you stay in queues for booking early morning tickets for a coveted entry to the museum. However, the area of the Louvre covers many of the wandering spots including the Carrousel du Louvre shopping mall, the banks of the River Seine, and a public garden, so you can hang around with kids.
You can take your kids to the Jardin des Tuileries, which is located in between the Musée du Louvre and the Place de la Concorde. In fact, the garden resides right in the middle of both monuments, featuring remaining objects of Palais de Tuileries, Musée de l’Orangerie, and the Galerie Nationale du Jeu de Paume.
The garden also features Water Lilies, the iconic painting of Oscar-Claude Monet, the French painter of the impressionist period. Going on to the Louvre, you can catch more objects including the ‘Great Sphinx of Tanis’ among many exhibitions which fascinate people of all demography.
The Jardin des Tuileries is a great way to hang around with kids featuring puppet shows, a Ferris wheel, carousels, and grounds where kids go trampolining, even sail boating on the pond. However, if you have older children, you can consider going on a family Paris tour to the 1st Arrondissement in Paris.
If you want to head to the Eiffel Tower, stroll along the River Seine from the Debilly Footbridge and you can get an ideal evening walk. This route would allow you to stumble upon and explore the Parisian streets by the River Seine and experience the true picture-postcard beauty of Paris from a different perspective.
Paris with kids shall not be limited to sightseeing only. Head to the 5th Arrondissement and get to the Jardin du Plantes building where the dinosaur museum and the National Museum of Natural History resides. You can also plan a visit to the Ménagerie zoo in the botanical garden to see the unique ‘reptiles gallery’ among other things.
