The activity book
This activity book is available free for children aged 7 to 12 on admission to every Culturespaces site. It helps them to learn while they're enjoying themselves, and discover a historic site in a fun way, through various games and puzzles. They will be accompanied throughout their visit by Hugo and Lea, two mischievous children who travel around France to visit Culturespaces sites: they are in summer outfits at the Ephrussi de Rothschild Villa; at the Cité de l'Automobile, they morph into a Formula 1 driver and mechanic; at the Château des Baux in Provence, they turn into a princess and a knight.
