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 prankster spirit”
Come and discover the story of a little prankster who, one fine day, decides to set out on a journey to an unknown destination: a museum of contemporary art. There he discovers surprising and unforgettable worlds. In the course of his explorations, he meets other spirits who pass on to him the most beautiful of messages.

The exhibition workshop
"The Hive" – On Vibration and Resonance
Designed by Tarek Atoui, artist of the Pinault Collection
The Ghost and Spirit exhibition presents the unclassifiable work of Mike Kelley (1954 - 2012), a performer, musician, draughtsman, sculptor, painter and director. A member of the American group Destroy All Monsters, his music is experimental and... striking! In connection with the exhibition, the workshop designed by artist Tarek Atoui invites children to play instruments in a creative way. Led by museum educators, it introduces them to the notion of vibration and how every sound is vibration traveling through air and different materials with astonishing sound qualities. Through combining percussion instruments and organic elements with daily life, motorised and vibrating objects, the children build a collective sonic landscape that interacts with its space and surroundings.
The architecture workshop
This workshop invites children to discover the architecture of the Bourse de Commerce through their senses of touch, sound and sight. After a fun tour exploring the building through their feelings and emotions, young visitors will create a small model of the building, like a treasure or memory box, giving shape to their experience of the museum.
