our youngest visitors?
Designed for 3-12 year-olds, our exhibitions also have a few surprises in store for younger visitors!
The Forest huts
Deep in the forest, three huts form a settlement. Play with the game pieces in different shapes and sizes, recognise quantities, solve simple problems, develop your relationship with the space around you: the experiments available in the huts are an opportunity for younger visitors to become more familiar with maths and logical patterns
Dot-to-dot in the Cave
With this fun and creative experience, children design a visual work using light. Resembling a pixel art-style wall fresco, this activity gets younger visitors exploring different senses and developing their fine motor skills in contact with light and coloured matter.
The tip tank in the Oasis
On their own or with others, children use a ladle to fill a tip tank. When it is full enough, it tips over and pours out the water it contains. This activity encourages children to exercise their fine motor skills directly with the matter and teaches them that, by working together, they can go faster!
The marble runs in the Tree Nursery
By using the plastic hoses, children build a circuit to help the lost ducklings to find their parents. A wheelbarrow is available to store the equipment or wander through the site.
The Bivouac is a space dedicated to relaxation. In a cosy, comfortable atmosphere, children can enjoy some quiet time before heading back out for new adventures.
