Musée en Herbe

Children’s Art Museum in Paris

23 Rue de l’Arbre Sec, 75001 Paris

Located in a narrow street behind the Louvre and the newly reopened La Samaritaine, this tiny museum is a little gem, especially if you are traveling with kids and love all things colorful and artsy.

The exhibitions at the Musée en Herbe change regularly and have recently included works by the Parisian street artist Invader, as well as examples of famous artworks to be discovered through play. All exhibitions are geared toward children but are also fun for adults as they teach you to look at art in a new, more playful way.

With just four small rooms, the museum makes it easy to keep kids’ attention. You receive a small booklet with challenges to complete during your visit — great fun for young and old. And, of course, there’s also a small gift shop to round out the experience.

To give you an idea, one of my favorite shows at the Musée en Herbe was the Monster, Manga and Murakami exhibition. Filled with large-eyed Japanese Manga images, cheery Murakami pictures, and odd sculptures (the monsters, I presume), this temporary expo was right up any kid’s alley!
