To go on with your trip in the past of Paris. In musée Carnavalet, 23, rue de Sévigné (3ème), we explore Paris through the centuries

In musée de la poste ,It's mail (slow mostly) through ages but it tells a lot about history. Near Montparnasse, 34 boulevard de Vaugirard 75015.
.Don't miss the exhibition about mail art.

Classic arts and emblematic place, Le louvre (too big for our taste but we know kids who appreciate the place really very much and you may want to have a glimpse at Mona lisa's smile).
Next to le Louvre, French art de vivre, the musée de la mode et du textile and the musée des arts décoratifs

In the Marais also, the conservatoire des arts et métiers, a beautiful place and museum dedicated to the history of technology, and machines.
60 rue Réaumur.
Founded in 1794 on the place of an old priory, this collection is unique in the worl by its exhaustiveness and vastness.
A remarkable testimony of man's ingenuity.
On sunday you can brunch in a great decor but you must book.


And now, let us turn our attention to the second part of the 19th century, beginning of the 20th.

Go to the musée Rodin in Hôtel Biron, next to the golden cupolas of Hôtel des Invalides. Hôtel Biron is a magnificent private mansion built in the 18 th century. In this museum you can stroll between masterpieces, personal belonging of an outstanding artist and enjoy the beauty and peacefulness of a private park in Paris. Rodin 1840-1917.

Not far from there and dedicated to artists of the same period (1848-1914), Orsay museum. Located in a former railway station, it is a magnificent and facinating museum. The only, but sometimes deterrent, drawback is that you can have to queue for hours to enter it!

If you are interested by impressionism, go to the musée de l'orangerie and look at the nympheas. Stunning..

And let's jump in the twentieth century,
First situated in the Marais, in one of the most famous private mansion of Paris, hôtel Salé built by a man who inspired Molière for the bourgeois gentilhomme and who became very wealthy collecting taxes on salt during the reign of Louis XIV, the Picasso museum,

And last but not least, one of our favorite place in Paris, Beaubourg, place G Pompidou, 4ème. A lively plazza, a building strongly colored, joyful, a bold, assertive industrial style. Enjoy the pleasure of discovering Paris progressively while climbing the escalator. Excellent exhibitions, a great collection of modern art and fine activities for kids
