Each event lasts 45 minutes, and is free of charge. There is also a similar programme for younger bookworms (from two years old), called “Né Pour Lire”. Check out their website below to choose the event closest to you!

KIDS’ WORKS EXPOSITION

During the February school holidays, the future museum for kids AMusEn, and Museomix came together to organise a holiday camp. Children aged eight and above are invited to imagine the museum of their dreams – they will prepare prototypes of their ideas using traditional materials and the most modern technology, including Virtual Reality.

Their work will then be shown at an exhibition in La Julienne (Plan-les-Ouates), which will be open to the public. It will be a great occasion to meet the people behind the AMusEn project and discover how a new museum comes to life. Parentville recommended!
