Paris sightseeing

sunny 32 °C

Our first full day in Paris we decided to head out to Park Villette and explore the Science Museum, cite des sciences and de l'industrie.
I had read this was a great place to take children but because its mostly in french there could be some problems. We needn't have worried the childrens section was in French, English and Spanish. The childrens section was divided into 2 sections, one for the 2-7 year olds and one for 5-12. The area was divided into sections all with their own theme. Kenzie really enjoyed the water area and biological area. Briana enjoyed the TV / Movie area (no surprise). Michael and I were really impressed with the displays and the educational value of the whole place.
Anyone considering a trip to Paris with children this is a must do.

After our session was over we explored the rest of the museum, with Michael happy to spend an hour in a science fiction exhibition.
Outside of the museum we had a walk around Park Villette, a quirky park with lots of contemporary art.
