For young audience

Children are just as welcome as adults at the Bourse de Commerce. With the help of workshops, tales and practical activities, discover the works of the collection, along with the building’s architecture. Child’s play!

Free admission to activities (no booking required)

Our educators offer a programme of activities and tools to allow accompanied children aged 6 to 12 to explore the museum. They are available all week in the museum galleries, and on weekends from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Mini Salon, our space dedicated to young visitors and those accompanying them. 

Take part in the activities proposed by museum educators (30 mins): make a mess with the history of contemporary art with the "Bazaar", build up your "Little Collection", explore the exhibitions with the "Compasses", or listen to an astonishing "Tale" about the artists and the works. 


Activities requiring booking

Available in French only

The museum tour

Designed in connection with the exhibitions at the Bourse de Commerce, and guided by the mediation team, the tour offers visitors of all ages the opportunity to explore the museum together.

For accompanied children aged 6 to 12. Every Sunday at 11:15 a.m.

"What a circus!" (1h) 

Explore the exhibition Le monde comme il va with your family. The works you’ll discover play with the reality around us and transform the Bourse de Commerce. Everything is distorted before our very eyes: the artists disguise themselves as characters from the circus or theatre, reinvent everyday objects, challenge our sense of balance, and create brilliant works that send our heads into a spin and make us lose all our bearings!

Book. Price: €5 for children - entrance ticket + €5 for adults (free with the Membership Pinault Collection card). 


Designed in connection with the exhibitions at the Bourse de Commerce and supervised by the mediation team, the workshops invite young unaccompanied visitors, to experiment with the artistic practices presented in the exhibitions, to discover techniques and creative gestures that they can then make their own.

This activity takes place in French for unaccompanied children, they can visit the museum by booking an exhibition ticket. The Bourse de Commerce reserves the right not to accept a child if their age is incompatible with the workshop, so please check the age range that is indicated.

  • The "exhibition" workshop (1h30) 

In collaboration with artist Kimsooja

Dancing with reflections

As part of her carte blanche for the exhibition Le monde comme il va ( “The World as It Goes”), the South Korean artist Kimsooja installed a huge mirror on the floor of the Bourse de Commerce Rotunda. With her installation To Breathe — Constellation, the artist has turned the architecture on its head, and with it the order of the world.

Based on Kimsooja’s gestural indications and led by the Bourse de Commerce's cultural mediation team, this choreographic workshop invites children aged 6 to 12 to explore this stunning work as a vast field of experimentation in which they can defy the laws of perception, marvel at the reflections of the surrounding architecture and of their bodies, and have fun with optical illusions to observe the world from a whole new perspective.

For 6–12 year-olds (unaccompanied). Every other Saturday at 3 p.m.

Book. Price: €12 (free with the Membership Pinault Collection card).
