What’s different about Peaceful Morning events?
- Reduced number of visitors to give young people all the room they need to have fun
- Reduced stimuli inside exhibitions halls, particularly in terms of sound and brightness
- Calmer areas with reduced lighting and floor mats
- A special visitors guide adapted to your needs

"Enjoying an activity this much together was a real first for us and our child. Appreciably less stress, a very welcoming and professional staff, and the exhibitions are incredible!"
"As parents, we feel much less pressure when we’re not the focus of onlookers. Everyone was so nice, all smiles, and we exchanged a lot of knowing glances with other parents as we watched our children play and enjoy the interactive stations in their own ways."
"I love that you call these events Peaceful Mornings because that’s exactly the feeling I had as a mother. I was appeased watching my daughter enjoy an environment that was both calm and stimulating but also free of judgment. Thanks again for putting this together!"
"This also gives children a chance to share an experience with other children who don’t judge them. Thank you so much."
