Travel to Paris and visit the French capital’s wonderful museums.

French museums are all offering virtual tours and access to their exhibitions! There are lots of different options, but we’ve chosen the best one for children, from “Le Musée d’Orsay”.

Follow Pompom (“l’ours” ?, a famous sculpture in the museum) & Lily (“la grenouille” ? from “Les Nymphéas” painted by Monet), on their journey across an interactive map of Paris. They discover paintings by famous French painters such as Renoir, Cézanne, Monet…the list goes on and on!! An amazing arty adventure for children to practise French at home while discovering these masterpieces!
