Fun, interactive exhibitions and numerous workshops are scheduled throughout the year. A wealth of resources are also available online.
Lose yourself in a maze!
Ready to play together in the Pays de Caux countryside? Every summer, the region’s corn fields become home to two temporary mazes. Come and play with your family and solve puzzles in this natural maze!
Hoist the mainsail high, little cabin boys!
Here, we start sailing very early! In Etretat, Voiles et Galets organises Jardins des Mer courses for the very young, from 4 years old. On the agenda: discover the coast, walks on the cliffs, collecting shellfish, kite making and discovering sailing on board an optimist.
Other courses are offered for children of all ages and teenagers.
In costume in the house of an 18th-century merchant!
The Shipowner’s House is an iconic museum of Le Havre’s history. Curio cabinets, library, study and other rooms of public and private life are organised around a skylight. Children can wear a period costume on request!
Back to the 1950s
The Perret show apartment presents the interior fittings designed during the reconstruction of Le Havre. The youngest visitors will be surprised to discover the everyday objects of the 1950s: record player, typewriter, telephone and period toys!
Adventure in the trees
In Le Havre, in the heart of the Montgeon forest, the LH Aventures park brings together treetop adventure courses, a giant net and zip lines.
Just a few kilometres from the famous cliffs, the Etretat Aventure team also offer aerial courses, climbing walls for the youngest as well as activities adapted to teenagers such as bungee jumping.
An aquarium at the foot of the cliffs
On the road linking Étretat to Le Havre, in an exceptional natural setting at the foot of the cliffs, the Aquacaux marine farm is a unique site. Several aquariums gather together farmed fish and local species. You can also discover the small laboratory where the plankton that feed these fish are raised!
The association also organises many nature walks.
Search for the sailor's treasure!
Illusionists, sirens and sailors await you at the LH 60 minutes escape game set up in the heart of Le Havre. One hour to build your team spirit and solve puzzles in original settings. Highly recommended for teenagers!
More than a thousand games!
