La Cadet residence Paris 9, for your family stays

During a trip to Paris with your family, the choice of accommodation is often a headache. Cadet Residence offers you a nice compromise between a hotel and a rental: the appart’hôtel. This concept allows you to enjoy a self-contained apartment, with a fully equipped kitchenette for cooking, a living room area for relaxing, and a private bathroom to take your time.

Just a stone’s throw away from the greatest monuments of Paris, in the 9th district, the Cadet Residence is the ideal place to enjoy your family time to the fullest, without time constraints, and with limited expenses. All you have to do is visit the capital in complete serenity, and enjoy every moment with your family.

Musée Grévin : the famous wax museum to visit with your family

Would you like to meet Louis XIV, have lunch with Victor Hugo or pose for Camille Claudel? Do you dream of singing along with Madonna, swapping balls with Lionel Messi or walking up the steps of the Cannes Film Festival with Brad Pitt? If these dreams don’t come true, go to the Grévin Museum to meet all these celebrities… in wax statues.

The Grévin Museum, a replica of the Madame Tussauds Museum in London, invites you to live a unique experience in Paris. There, more than 200 characters who have marked history await you in a journey marked by different immersive environments.

Since its creation on the Grands Boulevards in 1882, the museum has welcomed more than 2,000 characters from the past to the present, and authors have always rubbed shoulders with scientists, sportsmen, singers and actors, to the delight of visitors.

It’s the opportunity or never to make your most beautiful selfies, accompanied by the celebrities of this world. But it’s also a fun way to learn about French history with your children and to expand their general knowledge. As for the parents, a little bit of nostalgia might surprise them!

Visit the Palais Garnier with your family

Just a stone’s throw from the Grands Magasins and the Pigalle district, the Palais Garnier is a must-see place to visit, and is particularly suited to children, with a fun and educational tour.

A true architectural masterpiece

Built in 1875 at the request of Napoleon III, the Palais Garnier is probably one of the most breathtaking monuments in Paris. Even before entering the building, the flamboyantly gilded façade announces the beauty of the monument imagined by the architect Charles Garnier. Inside, the gilding, frescoes and sculptures make this temple of opera and dance a true jewel.

Your steps will lead you to the auditorium, where your eyes will instantly be drawn to the sublime ceiling. There, an immense 220 m² canvas, created by Chagall, overhangs the room and impresses.

A visit to the heart of a lyrical and magical world

Beyond the architecture, the Palais Garnier also pays tribute to the great legends of this world. During the visit, you will discover works of art representing major figures of mythology and fabulous sculptures.

The Palais Garnier also guides you in the footsteps of the famous Phantom of the Opera, a legendary character who was the subject of much ink before Gaston Leroux dedicated his eponymous novel to him.

And to make the visit more fun, children can enjoy a multimedia guide. The little ballerina Zoé guides children from 6 to 13 years old through a short tour with quizzes and games.

The Musée en Herbe: one of the only museums for the whole family

The Musée en Herbe is probably one of the only museums in Paris to offer exhibitions for all ages, from 3 to 103. Since 1975, this museum in the 1st arrondissement has been offering fun tours and temporary educational exhibitions that aim to awaken the curiosity and sensitivity of young and old alike.

This intergenerational museum allows children to discover art through play and manipulation, with surprising and always unexpected exhibitions.

To complete its offer, the Musée en Herbe, which is an association under the law of 1901, also offers fun walks in Paris, to discover the street-art of the 13th arrondissement, Montmartre, the Luxembourg Gardens, or the Tuileries Gardens.

Other activities to do with the family in Paris

Of course, Paris is full of other ideas for family outings. Take advantage of the school vacations to discover the Jardin d’Acclimatation, the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie, the Jardin des Plantes, the Musée de l’Homme or the Muséum d’Histoire Naturelle. The most adventurous will go to the amusement parks to live an adventure in family, and the most curious will browse the museums of Paris in family.

And why not consider a treasure hunt in Paris, to discover its different districts in a playful and free way?
