ABSTRACT : If museums adapt their exhibitions to school audiences by designing guided or interactive tours, as well as organising creation and expression workshops, welcoming families, in the context of a normal visit, still raises many questions, as very few studies focus on the expectations of families with children aged 8 to 12 when visiting a museum. Research carried out at the Musée de la Bande Dessinée in Angoulême allowed us to discover the contrast between school visits, often very popular, compared to family visits, often tedious and disappointing, which is damaging for the image of the museum on the Internet. Our reflection of what’s on offer at the Musée de la BD led to the creation of a social and semiotic theoretical framework combining different forms of mediation —through the museum, the parents and technology — in order to suggest a joint museum experience between parents and children that would strengthen family ties.
