It’s raining: 5 ideas for family outings on the Côte d’Azur!

Clouds and rain on the Côte d’Azur! Are you looking for ideas to keep your kids busy? Here are 5 ideas for family outings when it’s raining on the Côte d’Azur!

OUTING IDEA No. 1: Discover the marine world in Monaco!

Dive into the oceans and discover the world of the sea, but without getting wet! The Musée Océanographique in Monaco is a real family favourite because this Palace is entirely dedicated to Art and Science, and teaches every generation about the beauty and fragility of our seas, our oceans and the animals that populate them… During your visit to all the museum’s floors, you’ll meet more than 6000 living specimens in their faithfully restored natural environments…

OUTING IDEA No. 1: Discover the marine world in Monaco (continued)!

Travel through 100 years of history recounting the commitment of the Princes of Monaco to the marine world, participate in a virtual dive with an augmented reality headset, touch the marine fauna with your fingertips in the touch pool… and even more adventures! In addition to giving you the opportunity to learn and understand, the Musée Océanographique in Monaco encourages participation: collaborative games, experiments, manipulations…

OUTING IDEA No. 2: Take the children to the theatre!

Located in the centre of Nice, Théâtre l’Alphabet is ideal for children to discover the scenic arts. Every Saturday morning and afternoon, and every day during school holidays, Théâtre l’Alphabet offers interactive shows suitable from the age of 18 months.

OUTING IDEA No. 3: Join an olfactory workshop in Grasse!

A perfumer since 1849, in Grasse Maison Molinard invites you on a journey to the heart of perfumery… As a family, wander freely (no charge) in the Bastide Molinard among objects and curiosities, old labels, flasks, and more, and discover how a perfume is created, from harvesting the raw materials to the final product. At the end of the visit, you can learn to be a “nose” and create your own perfume at the Fragrance Bar (booking required – fee payable for the workshop)! A fun idea for a family outing to introduce the children to an important part of Grasse’s heritage.
Maison Molinard

Your child is a fan of the TV program « Bake-off » or the tutorials given by « L’atelier de Roxane » (who is from Nice!) on YouTube? Why not try the JACOBS CRÉATION workshop in Nice! Games of flavours and culinary experiments to develop a practical feel – have fun, touch, create and taste at the Jacobs School! And during the holidays, Solène, a pastry chef and cake design specialist who is in charge, always has a delicious program for apprentice bakers – be they children, teenagers or adults!

OUTING IDEA No. 5: be tempted into the world of virtual reality…

The success of virtual reality has given rise to a new kind of arcade on the Côte d’Azur! KIDIKLIK 06 recommends UniVR in Mandelieu-La-Napoule (225, Avenue Saint-Exupery)! Cross a board suspended over the emptiness at more than 80 meters high, race a car in a simulator mounted on cylinders, experience real thrills in virtual reality films, etc. More than words, the UniVR room is a place to discover and experience with your teenagers (from 11 years old)!
