Little Villette

Experience La Villette from a child's perspective.

In front of the Grande Halle, you’ll find a rectangular building with triangular windows and round doors: this is Little Villette. Here, a variety of disciplines are practiced (circus, literature, visual arts, performances) along with activities related to biodiversity.

Whether or not you have planned your family outing, the teams running this place are ready to welcome you for joyful, poetic, and creative moments!

Exceptional closure from June 23 to October 4

Enjoy free activities

Every weekend, enjoy My Little Villette activities with free access: game bar, reading lounge, toddlers’ rotunda, Lego® table and wall, Little Expo, and Little Ciné for our budding movie buffs! Fiction, animation, cartoons, slapstick… all kinds of cinema are featured at Little Villette.

During themed weekends, activities are designed in line with La Villette’s programming.

Join for workshops

The Ateliers Villette invite you to play, learn, and marvel! They take place at Little Villette, the Ferme de la Villette, or the Jardins Passagers, and are offered to children and their accompanying adults.

Each season, our team creates a rich offering around circus, storytelling, hip-hop dance, visual arts, nature, animals… Take your pick!

A range of workshops dedicated to adults is also available to learn various practices depending on the seasons and connect with nature.

Attend shows

Circus, theater, drawing concerts, dance, puppets… each season, children’s shows delight both the little ones and the grown-ups!

Extend the experience at Little Villette where activities and workshops are designed in connection with the shows.

Note: We remind you that it is strongly recommended to follow the age recommendations so that your children can fully enjoy the show.

Time for cinema!

Short animated films, American cartoons, slapstick comedies… for budding cinephiles from 4 years old.
