TA DA at the Centre Pompidou

June 13, 2013

Last weekend Esther and co were in town, which was a serious amount of fun! It was so great catching up, though at the end of the weekend we did start wondering what we should do, as it was literally pouring with rain the whole time. That being said, finding things to do in Paris is not very hard…. We all wrapped up and headed over to the Pompidou Centre, specifically the Children’s Gallery, which is hosting a brilliant, interactive exhibition: Ta-Da!

The artist Navid Nuur wants kids to learn again about how to play and create with everyday objects and see the beauty in them. It is really well done — I think everyone’s favourite was the 3 columns filled with play dough or the machine that made medals out of a 5 cent piece.

The Centre Pompidou is, by the way, one of my favourite places to take visitors. It has such a great view over Paris, the permanent exhibition is amazing, as are more of the temporary ones, and, not to forget, the gift and book shop are full of beautiful bits and pieces. (I do love a good museum shop!)

I’m a nanny in Paris and I always take the little one to Le 104 on rainy days. There’s a bookstore, a children’s area, lots of space for dance and gymnastics. It’s a great, great place for little ones!

That was a great day. I wish I lived in Paris!!!! How cool is the Centre Pompidou? (And we were so lucky to see the Eileen Grey expo too — I loved that!)

Love going to the Centre Pompidou with Little Miss. She loves the colourful works of art and there’s always something new to see. We’re planning to get a family pass starting this Fall!
