For young audience

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

The travelling children’s salon

In this space, children—and the adults accompanying them—are welcomed by guides. Their mission is to introduce them to a range of tools and resources to help them discover and approach the artworks: games and quizzes, books and lots of advice on how best to visit the exhibitions without a tour guide. Adults are requested to participate actively, and particularly to accompany children under the age of 6.

The children’s salon is open and accessible without booking on Wednesdays, on weekends, and every day during school holidays, from 2pm to 6pm, subject to the availability of space.

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!



Beginning in October 2021, workshops for children aged 6 to 12 are offered during school holidays. Every workshop is led by a Bourse de Commerce guide and reflects the current artistic programme or is based on an original suggestion by the invited artists.
