Visit Musée du Quai Branly: Discover the explorer in everyone

See the world on a walk. With thousands of items on display (there’s around 9,000 musical instruments from around the globe.), it may be hard to know where to begin. The museum offers an app and a guide to help focus young minds as they walk through the museum. A Maori dugout canoe from New Zealand, a cobra headdress made of lucky stones from Tibet, a voodoo doll from Morocco – each item is selected to spark kids’ curiosity so that they’ll explore more. After exploring inside, you’ll want to walk through the gardens outside that extend up the walls of the building.

There is a coat room to store bags and strollers for free, although strollers are welcome in the museum. There are baby changing facilities, and you should check the calendar for family-focused activities. There’s also a café looking out over the terrace and a more upscale restaurant with city views on the roof that requires reservations.

Actually, it’s more like 49, but 50 is a nice round number. Jardin d'Acclimatation is an ideal family-friendly thing to do in Paris. Your little thrill-seekers can ride with you on rollercoasters designed just for kids.
