Skip the Line: Eiffel Tower Tour and Summit Access by elevator

946 reviews
Queues for the Eiffel Tower can take over an hour at busy times but this skip-the-line tour lets you breeze past the crowds and enjoy priority access. Head straight up to the second floor and listen as your guide points out the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, and Notre Dame Cathedral. Finally, continue to the top floor on your own, where you can spend as long as you like admiring the views.

This is one of the recommended places in Paris to bring children and while there are many interesting things and exhibits to see, the over all handling of guests can be much improved. Perhaps because we visited during peak season for school children, the museum was full of kids on field trips -- and it was noisy and not well managed, by both museum staff and chaperones of the school kids. Some of the exhibits were not working and there was no one to manage the lines of kids at the more popular displays. The science museum for adults is more geared to teen agers and high school students.

So many things to discover! And explain for kids but one more time... they lack people or don’t want to hire and the experience is not ideal because of that. The machine that does boxes was over crowded all the time which made it not work and be stuck... and no one was here to help. They plan entrances at specific times so that there are not too many people at the same time but it actually works in a way that they have too many at the same time. I suspect it’s just that it makes them limit their work to specific times :-) instead of scanning our tickets beforehand they keep us waiting for half an hour and make us enter all together and it creates a mess and added waiting time. Once in there.. it’s almost impossible to play with anything because 400 kids + adults were given access at the same time + the summer camps... too bad as it is really nice

We visited both sections, the one for younger kids was mostly OK, but the one for bigger kids was so overcrowded that the entire experience was a bit ruined since kids were kind of fighting over many activities + quite a lot of things were not working - e.g. the box printing machine, which kids were very interested in, or the movie making camera. I think it would have been a way more agreable experience with less kids in.

Modern museum of science where you can find some interesting for the children from 2 to 99. You can spend there all the day long with any doubt. It’s better to by annual pass because you will definitely comeback.

We visited on a Sunday afternoon in the Easter holidays with prebooked tickets (booked the day before, showing the ticket on a mobile phone is fine). Heeding the warnings in other reviews we got there half an hour before our allotted time, but actually there was no queue at security or to enter the waiting area when we went. It was busy, but there are a lot of different things kids can do. Our daughter is 5 and we went to the section for older children, which was definitely the right choice - she especially loved the 'water games' area. We spent the full 90 minutes allowed in there, which was about the right amount of time. A few things were only aimed at French speakers, but the majority had instructions/explanations in English as well. A couple of the exhibits were broken, but the majority were in good condition. Comparable with the Wonderlab at the science museum in London. We had limited time so didn't visit the main part of the science museum or the Argonaut submarine. There are some good playgrounds in the surrounding park.
