Enjoy a guided visit with a specialized tour guide at the Bourse de Commerce. The tour content is adapted to suit the group, the age of the participants and their educational needs. On offer: a range of three themed tours.
Seen from the outside, the Bourse de Commerce forms a perfect circle. This unique design is a rarity in the Parisian urban landscape. Immediate departure: this architectural tour takes visitors on a remarkable voyage through the five centuries of the building’s history. Discover the “queen’s palace”, the “municipal pantry”, the “world store”, and the “contemporary art museum”, and admire the different architectural elements that make up the Bourse de Commerce.
The Exhibition Tour
Paintings, sculptures, videos, photographs, sound works, installations: from works that have already made the istory of contemporary art to the most emerging artists, the collection offers a perspective on the art of our time. This guided visit invites you to take a tour of the current exhibitions and, through active observation, to share your experience of the works.
Where are we?
Where do artworks come from? Who chooses to exhibit them? How do you arrange them in space? What is a museum label?... On this tour, find the answers to all these questions and get a glimpse into the workings of a contemporary art museum.
Storytelling tour (Ages 3–5)
This storytelling tour introduces children to art through a playful and rhythmed narrative. Exploring the exhibition spaces, the children will discover the works on display and all the imaginary worlds they project.
“The four seasons of snow”
Do you know the story of the little boy who loves snow? He waits patiently for it, looks for it every season, and wonders when it disappears. Where is it? It is during his visit to the museum that he understands that snow is everywhere: in a river after it melts, or in the sky in midwinter.

Workshops last 1.5 hours and are intended for groups of 6- to 12-year-olds.
The exhibition workshop
Sow the seeds, reap the rain
In this workshop children will be able to make a rain stick! A small instrument filled with seeds, which sounds like a rain shower, a waterfall. After observing the unity and diversity of seeds in order to understand what botany calls “varieties”, the participants will choose their instruments’ sound properties from the possibilities offered by the living world. They will then set off to explore the exhibitions with their sound sticks! The echo of their explorations will enliven the museum’s spaces... and may even wake up some of the works.
The architecture workshop
The folds of history
This workshop invites children to discover the unique architecture of the Bourse de Commerce and to understand its five centuries of history. After visiting the building and identifying its various architectural features, the children are invited to create a hybrid architectural structure out of paper. Through a game of collage and folding that produces optical illusions, they are able to bring the past and present together with their own hands.
