You simply cannot visit this place without coming here. Some of the best modern art in the world with much of it free to view. The top floor restaurant is incredible too; expensive but worth it for a treat. It gets busy here when there's a big show on, so book in advance. FUN FACT: Did you know the 'inside out' design of the Pompidou, with its pipes outside, inspired the design of the air bubble on the Nike Air trainers?
It is actually a modern museum with mainly contemporary art. Sometimes we can also find some behaviour artists and dancers there. What's more it is located in the centre of Paris, you can find lots of cultural and historic building. In conclusion, it's a good place to visit if you like art.
The Location: Metro#11, exit "Rambuteau". The metro station is right next to the museum. The Admission: 11 euro (included in the museum pass)It is one of the world's leading museums of modern and contemporary art. They have a theater for performance. There is a cafe. Big courtyard, during summer time, there are street performers. Many restaurants/cafes nearby. Definitely a fun place to hang out.
Interesting architectural design and good if you like shopping. Also, it is just fun to say
For modern design lovers, this is the place you must come and visit. Especially you can overlook the city from the roof top. You can see the famous Eiffel tower and Sacré-Cœur. Besides, there are many shops and restaurants around Pompidou. Very good for travellers to spend whole day in this area.
Housing the largest collection of modern art in Europe, the Centre Pompidou could be mistaken for a 1960s industrial chemical factory – albeit an uber stylish one. With exposed steel work, colourful piping and air ducts forming the external fascade of the building, it strikes an unmistakable pose on Paris' visual geography. Since its debut in 1977, this unique six level doyen of the arts has wowed the world's art lovers in their droves. Its oceans of space contain huge galleries, workshop and performance areas, a biblioteque and cinemas, and at its apex, the rich-vista-giving restaurant, Georges.
I love the contemporary art museum and it's unusual inside out building! All of the pipes address on the outside and so are the escalators. Inside, you'll find a cinema and a library, a rooftop restaurant, and of course the art museum that features both modern art, specialty exhibits (currently The Beat Generation and Rene Magritte), and newer contemporary art.
This place is really incredible for many reasons. The art galleries and their works have extensive descriptions for each art piece which helps you understand the purpose especially if you don't know much about modern art. The center has great views of Paris, you can even have a fancy lunch at it's rooftop restaurant. The building itself is a work of art and great for photography lovers. You can get lost easily here through it's many escalators, and they're lacking in placing directions for visitors, but the lost moments lead you to great spaces you would have otherwise not found. Love this museum, will come again.
