Kids

For young audience

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

Visitor’s booklet

Want to learn to look at architecture in more detail? Then set off on a fun visit of the exhibitions! Children find it much easier with this booklet, created by Anaïs Vaugelade, author and illustrator. Don’t forget to ask for one in the Salon. It’s free!

 

The travelling children’s salon

At weekends, itinerant tour guides make their way through the exhibition galleries to meet with younger visitors, offering advice on how best to visit the museum, a booklet and games about the artworks. Tales directly inspired by the works of art that inhabit the Bourse de Commerce are proposed by the mediation team to accompanied children :

Une souris au musée (a mouse in the museum) for 2- to 4-year-olds

A very curious little mouse has lost her way in the Bourse de Commerce. Amazed by everything that she sees around her, she is left… speechless! What’s going on in this huge space? What are all these materials and all these forms? The little mouse has so many questions. Brought to life by a mediator, the story of this smallest of visitors will guide kids and grown-ups as they discover the works presented by the Bourse de Commerce.

Le voyage de Martin (Martin's journey) for 5- to 7-year-olds

Martin is a little boy who has been living for more than a century in the large painting that adorns the museum dome. One day, he decides to escape from it so that he can finally discover the world of today. And so begins a surprising journey... punctuated by the works of art he will encounter on his way.

 

Visit-workshops

Imagined alongside the exhibitions and the programmes of the Bourse de Commerce and led by mediator-guides or by guest artists, these workshops invite young visitors to train their eye and sharpen their sensibility for contemporary creativity.

The activitiy is conducted in French, without parents - they can visit the museum by booking an exhibitions ticket. The Bourse de Commerce reserves the right not to accept a child if his/her age is incompatible with the workshop, so please take into account the age range indicated. 

La visite-atelier décalée (The offbeat visit-workshop) (1.5 hours)

For 5- to 7-year-olds. Saturdays (and every Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday during the school holidays), at 3pm. 

This offbeat tour-workshop takes a look at artists who reuse everday objects in their work, including recyclable materials and waste items salvaged from the street. Upcycled and put to use in something other than their original function, these materials question the symbolic charge that they contain, as well as history, politics and the ecological issues of our time. Accompanied by a guide, children are invited to let their imagination run wild by working with salvaged materials, assembling them together and giving them a second lease of life.

Booking required. Price: 12€

La visite-atelier Les milles et un visages de la Bourse de Commerce (The many faces of the Bourse de Commerce visit-workshop) (1.5 hours)

For 8- to 12-year-olds. Saturday (and every Monday, Thursday and Saturday during the school holidays), at 3pm. 

Long closed off and hidden from public view, the remarkable and unique architecture of the Bourse de Commerce can now be rediscovered. Accompanied by a mediator, children are invited to study the architecture of the museum, with all its curves and its forms, and to learn how to understand space through observation and through emotion. Using the architectural elements discussed during their visit, each child can imagine a collage that gives form to the face of the Bourse de Commerce.

Booking required. Price: 12€

“Annlee, tell me a story” 

Do you know Annlee? She's a manga character who stares out at us through her screen, but sometimes she comes out to meet us. Annlee has many stories to tell. She is fascinated by our real world and would like to tell us about the discoveries she has made at the Bourse de Commerce. According to her, there are flying fish, ghosts, and even walls to write on... in a museum? An unusual story.

Booking required. Price: entrance ticket + 5€ per participants (children and adults).
