Visiting Museums as a Family

Dans les 10 musées de la Riviera

5 - 6 November 2023


Launched in autumn 2000, the "Family Weekend at the Museums" is a special moment of complicity and discovery for families. 

On the first weekend in November, the museums offer, upon registration, activities for families allowing them to live together amazing experiences.

Each museum organizes a workshop for the creation of works or objects related to its theme, adapted to be carried out collectively by the whole family.

This event is a great opportunity to discover ancient and contemporary techniques, to meet artists and craftsmen and above all to enrich the family with a wonderful experience shared by all. Common point of all its activities, families take their creations with them.
All workshops are now SOLD OUT!
