Families & Children

Families & Children


You wish to awaken the interest of your children, grandchildren, nephews, nieces in music… to give them the opportunity to discover concerts, activities and exhibitions which are rich, varied and suitable for their age-group? You’ve come to the right place. Welcome to the whole family.

Concerts, shows, activities and visits

We offer children and their families the appreciation of music through original programming, with an emphasis on exchange sharing and discovery between generations. Family weekends, concerts, shows, musical awakenings, practical musical workshops, exhibitions and visits, with or without parents… music is learned, listened to and lived at the Philharmonie.

Families, children up to 6

Families, children 7 to 11

Families, children 12 and up


No matter what age the children you bring, we will be glad to see you! An age bracket is systematically associated with each concert or activity. It’s important to respect these guidelines. The activity you have chosen has been conceived for a particular age-group in terms of the pedagogy employed and the children’s development. The guidelines are also aimed at assuring homogeneity of groups. In order to maximise the experience, it’s important that you prepare your kids for the visit and what they will hear and see.

Thematic Weekends

Vue du Belvedere

Structured around a specific theme, genre, musician, instrument or geographic area, weekends at the Philharmonie offer the public a fresh take on music and its appreciation : new concert formats, family shows and activities, musical child-care…


Media library


At the Media Library, concert-goers, Museum visitors, and participants in musical practice workshops can add another dimension to their experience through reading and audiovisual media.
