A visit to the Cernuschi Museum is part of the “Musées et Monuments en Liberté” tour for young people, organised by the PEP 75 associations with 2 booklets (for the children and their group leader), 1 tour card, 1 audio tour to download. 

Groups can opt for a self-guided tour of the museum or a guided tour. Bookings are required and the visit is free of charge.
