We heard about this place shortly before arrived in Paris. I was told it was a great place for the young and old and I had to check it out. During the summer they offer English tours. Most people end up doing the French tours...More

I have wanted to visit this museum for a long time and is truly is cool... it just has a small collection. The art is beautiful, the games are fun/ funny, the carousels are splendid. I wish there had been more to see.

A funny experience with many interesting details, decorations, dolls and machines, especially for children. There is a carousel of horses and another of bicycles. You must book before visiting the museum. We found the price a bit high, due to the museum being not so...More

I saw a reportage about this museum on a French TV channel and got immediately hooked! We booked a tour in English and our guide was superb - he was enthusiastic, knew his stuff, and delivered quite a performance of Edith Piaf while we rode...More

Fantastic exhibition and interactive fun run by an engaging tour leader. Commentary was in French but it didn't bother us, there was too much to look at and enjoy. Children seemed to love it as much as adults.

Important! This is a privately owned museum and you must make reservations for a tour. You cannot just arrive and go in. That said...it is so worth it to make the effort. We've been twice, and been lucky enough to have English tours both times...More

Was very interested in seeing Musee des Arts Forains as something a little different. There are some beautiful displays and rides, and getting to ride on these was the best part. Our tour was in French, so I'm guessing we missed out on quite a...More

Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise
lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and
impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small
parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy
Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois
de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on
its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to
this calming neighborhood where real Parisians make
