Visits as a family

Activities for young visitors

The Centre Pompidou provides various activities for young visitors, whether alone or accompanied, with exhibitions and workshops in three spaces dedicated to a sensitive exploration of modern art and contemporary creation.

The Galerie des Enfants is a multidisciplinary, temporary exhibition space where children aged 5 and over, accompanied by their families, can develop an outlook on the world through observation and experimentation. The Galerie des Enfants offers children a programme that fosters their exposure to creation and artists, with two special exhibitions each year.

The Atelier des Enfants is a place dedicated to thinking and creation. Workshops designed for children aged 3 to 5 and 6 to 12 become new keys – forged by the children under the guidance of visual artists – to understanding works and becoming immersed in them. For very small children, circuits with storytellers, musicians or visual artists awaken the five senses, fostering exchanges and questioning.

Lastly, with the Impromptus on the first Sunday of every month, the Atelier des Enfants offers free admission for moments of creativity and sharing as a family in participatory events devised by artists.

Studio 13/16, the first area in a major cultural institution exclusively devoted to teenagers aged 13 to 16, offers a programme of meetings with creators of all kinds (musicians, stage directors, street artists, designers, stylists, etc.), evening events and workshops based on artistic issues and topical subjects relevant to the world of teenagers – all suggestions and spaces for a first experience with art works at the Centre Pompidou, or a way of seeing them differently!

Workshops and individual circuits for children aged 3-12

The Atelier des Enfants provides activities for very young children on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays, and every day during the school holidays (zone C), except Tuesdays.
For children aged 3 to 5, workshops and circuits take place as a family, where the presence of a parent is obligatory.
For children aged 6 to 12, workshops are available without parents on weekdays, and as a family at weekends, where the presence of a parent is obligatory.

Workshops and circuits for children aged 3 to 12 

Prices for activities as a family:
A full price ticket costs €10, and is valid for one child and one adult.
A reduced-price ticket is €8.  
For each additional person (child or adult), the price is €8.  
The ticket also provides access to the museum and Galerie des Enfants (on the same day).

Prices for activities without parents (children aged 6 to 12 on weekdays):
A full price ticket costs €10.

Tours of the permanent collections and temporary exhibitions  
Visits cater to all school levels. They are designed to approach works starting with fundamental notions in the language of creation, and reflect teaching themes covered by school curriculums. The lecturers are sensitive to their audiences, and adapt tours to the age and level of knowledge of their particular group.
If the theme you are interested in does not appear in our list of suggested tours, you can ask our reservations team about it.  

Themed circuits for young audiences
Themed circuits are designed to stimulates the five senses of younger audiences, immersing them in the heart of the Musée National d’ Art Moderne collection. These circuits are accompanied by musicians, storytellers or actors, and invent new paths for understanding modern and contemporary creation.

Workshops for young audiences
Workshops for children aged 3 to 12 take place in two stages. In the first phase of questioning and visual experimentation, the children make an individual or collective work. They then explore works or exhibitions in the Museum. On the strength of their experience, they look at things differently, make connections and establish relationships, and a dialogue is created.  

"Active "visits in the Galerie des Enfants
The Galerie des Enfants is a multidisciplinary and temporary exhibition area where children aged 6 and over can develop their view of contemporary creation and the world around them through observation and experimentation.  

Inter-museum circuits
The Centre Pompidou joins forces with other cultural institutions in Paris to invent multidisciplinary circuits between the museums, designed for all levels.

Accompanying specific audiences

Become a community outreach player

To foster access to culture for people who are particularly cut off from it, the Centre Pompidou has introduced varied cultural offers with especially-designed mediation and specific pricing, together with personalised assistance to professionals and volunteers working in the community sector.


Discover the offer

Tours/talks with a lecturer 

The Centre Pompidou offers community outreach groups tours for all ages with experienced lecturers and coordinators, who provide especially-designed mediation that involves exchanges and sharing based on audiences' sensitive reactions to the works. You can explore the museum's permanent collections together with the temporary exhibitions, or create tailor-made tours focused on subjects that interest your group, based on temporary exhibitions or the permanent collections. Ideas and themes that you could choose for your tour include "The body and movement", "Women in art", "Recovering and diverting objects", "Colour in art", and "The five senses".  

Storytelling tours

Here you set out to discover the museum's collections with a storyteller. This educational, fun and poetic approach to works through stories is successful with adult, teenage, children and family audiences alike, as they discover the museum's collections for the first time.  

Unaccompanied group visits

If you wish to bring your group for an unaccompanied visit to the Centre Pompidou, training cycles in two stages are proposed below.  
At the end of the first introductory visit, you acquire the "right to speak" – meaning the right to address your group "in public" within the Museum.
You can see what exhibitions are currently on in the online diary, in the "exhibitions" section.  

Programmes for young people: film, talks and shows

Preparing your visit

Find out about our introductory tours and free training courses! Designed for people working in a community outreach organisation, these enable you to prepare future visits to the Centre Pompidou with a group.
You thus become familiar with the Centre Pompidou and its collections, discover the various activities on offer, develop new mediation techniques for your groups and get to know the community outreach team.

1. Introductory tour of the museum or exhibitions.

Come and talk to us about your projects, and find out what the Centre Pompidou has in store for community outreach audiences. In this session, we suggest how you can fine-tune your visit to the Centre and adapt it to the requirements of your organisation. It is a tailor-made workshop where, together, we study the particular benefits of showing contemporary art to your audience, and help you pinpoint your needs in terms of training.

2. Training cycle

This series of training visits prepares you to manage an independent visit with your group. You can take part in one or more visits, in any order you like:

- Intensive course on mediation techniques in the museum  
If you wish to bring your group in the near future to look at the collections of the Centre Pompidou, but don't feel confident enough to manage the visit on your own, then this module is made for you! We give you the keys to understanding the contemporary works you look at, and suggest mediation techniques that you can adapt to your audience on the day of your visit.

- Introductory mediation workshop
Here you receive training on cultural mediation and experiment with interactive activities in the museum collections, which you can repeat with your audience. Workshops in the permanent collection areas and activity rooms enable you to approach art in a different way, through fun activities that you can do with your group in the museum or within your own organisation.  

- Tours of the collections
All through the year, numerous tours of the collections and temporary exhibitions are provided so that you can get to know the collections before your visit. Together with a lecturer, you can acquire fundamental knowledge about the works and think about the type of visit that would best suit your group.

Resources

Find out about the different resources designed to help you to prepare your visit.

Visit aid dossiers

These dossiers, especially created for community outreach projects, are designed to help you prepare unaccompanied visits. They present the Centre Pompidou, provide points of reference in the collections and exhibitions, and cast light on a selection of works, as well as providing resources and practical information. The following are available: a specific dossier on the modern collections, one on the contemporary collections, and themed dossiers (for example, "Women in art", "Recovering and diverting objects"). Dossiers for community outreach projects are also available on request at the following address: champsocial@centrepompidou.fr

Teaching dossiers

Around 150 teaching dossiers (also intended for students and teachers) are available to prepare your visit so that you can gather information about art, its figures and trends.

Art Session podcasts

Young people in the Art Session volunteer group have made podcasts in order to transmit their feelings about works that appeal to them. This is a way of addressing their generation by expressing their personal approach to art.

The Centre Pompidou channel on Dailymotion

You can find trailers for shows, videos about the Museum and its activities, together with filmed debates and interviews on the Dailymotion Centre Pompidou channel.

The "Vivre ensemble" mission

Since 2004, the Centre Pompidou has been committed to the "Vivre ensemble" mission created by the Ministry of Culture and Communication to foster "tolerance, the respect of differences and the desire to live together". All 28 establishments involved in this mission offer tailor-made introductory visits for community outreach audiences and programmes, with a dedicated coordinator from the institution, at specific prices. The group also issues a joint quarterly newsletter, organises an annual forum and lays on "introductory visit" weeks between the establishments.

A charter on receiving special community audiences has been signed by all member establishments of the "Vivre Ensemble" mission.

Discover programmes designed for people with Alzheimer's disease

In close collaboration with the ARTZ Association, which organises artistic activities and cultural trips for people with Alzheimer's disease, the Centre Pompidou offers specific cycles of tours within its collections. The aim of the project is to offer those in early, moderate or moderately severe stages of the illness access to artistic experiences adapted to their persistence faculties. By raising their awareness and involving them every two weeks in the discovery or rediscovery of several works of art, these visits help them to change their own image of their illness, and alter that of their families and the general public, thus contributing to their social integration and participation.  

These cultural trips are designed to stimulate the cognitive functions of Alzheimer's sufferers, improve their capacities for persistence, mitigate their psychobehavioural disorders and enable them to be more in harmony with their environment.  

The Centre Pompidou is carrying out this project in collaboration with the ARTZ Association, which has developed expertise in the appropriate mediation, and demonstrated the positive impact of these visits on the cognitive functions and psychobehavioural issues of those with Alzheimer's.

Benefit from visits sponsored by the "Entreprendre pour aider" endowment fund

Ever since it was founded, the Centre Pompidou has welcomed all audiences, giving them access to the creation of our times.

The "Entreprendre pour Aider" endowment fund supports the Centre Pompidou in its talks/lecture project designed for people with psychological and neurocognitive disorders, because it believes in the widespread philosophy that art is essential to mental health.

Through this sponsorship, the Centre Pompidou and "Entreprendre pour Aider" invite small groups of mentally or psychically disabled people (5 to 12, not including their assistants) to come and discover the Centre Pompidou and the collections of the Musée d'Art Moderne for the first time, in a cycle of two sessions, accompanied by Centre Pompidou lecturers who are specialists in neuropedagogics, and who provide suitable mediation.  

This two-session cycle of especially adapted visits is aimed at foster homes, sheltered housing centres, hospitals and associations keen to give their groups a first-time experience of the Centre Pompidou, and wishing to find out about the lecturers' approach for exchanges around the works studied.

These visits are designed for people of all ages, whether children, teenagers or adults.   

To reserve a free cycle of two visits:

As from 26 August, telephone the reservation unit: 01 44 78 12 57, from 9.30 a.m. to 1.00 p.m.
Indicate that you wish to reserve the "Entreprendre pour aider" cycle of two visits.
These visits can be programmed at your convenience between September 2013 and June 2014, but you must reserve both dates in the cycle at the same time when you call the reservation unit.
You can reserve these visits any day of the week except Tuesdays, Sundays or Saturday afternoons, subject to the availability of the time slots desired.
