This expansive collection housed in a magnificent building adjoining the Louvre, could be considered the fun, kid-friendly neighbor to the mega museum next door. With 150 thousand works of decorative arts, it’s a day (or week’s) work to wander through centuries of style. Stéphanie Rodhain-Le Saux , a Paris mom, provides this tip on tackling the museum with kids: “most of the visitors come to see the fashion or design temporary exhibitions but the museum also present a complete collection of jewels, furniture from the Middle Age and a very rare toys collection. It’s a very funny way to make children come to museums.”
