I guess I'm just not a modern art person. Other than the Picassos, very little there that I could be bothered to stop and look at. Some of the stuff looks like it fell out of a yard sale. Not my thing. I should have used the time at a classical museum. Cool stuff for sale from vendors in the... More

We loved the artwork on the 5th floor. So many beautiful works from so many well known artists. The rooms are numbered and a logical pathway is easy to follow. With the esculators on the outside you have to return to the start of the floor to go back down to the next floor unless you are able to use... More

I went with my family of five this month and since children under the ages of 18 it was only $28 for my husband and me. To start they make you begin at the top so you take escalators in a human gerbil too many stories high giving the viewer an incredible view of Paris and the skyline. Once in... More

Went on a clear, sunny day to ride up the escalators to the very top since I knew you would have an excellent view of the city. Got to come in for free since we had the Paris Museum Pass. Just be warned it is very hot at the top for the view when the weather is sunny since the... More

After walking through the Marais, this modern art museum's extensive collection was too much to see during our visit. definitely go if you have any desire to see or learn more about modern art. Some of the descriptions were in English as well. Cool building with its guts on the outside.

Upon reaching the top of the escalator that runs along the outside of the museum, I was amazed by the unique views of Paris, and it many monuments, from different windows of the museum. The monuments dwarfed the cityscape that surrounded them and gave them a surreal effect. They were giants among the buildings that surrounded them, and the image... More

The Pompidou Center or Beaubourg as my rue des Francs Bourgeois neighbors called it, will always be a favorite of mine. It's exterior is intriguing for first time visitors! The surrounding plaza is also always entertaining with several good cafes that regularly serve the model crowd and their booking agents. We always start on the top floor for the fabulous... More

The building itself is fascinating. A contemporary structure which has earned and deserves its reputation for excellence. Wonderful variety of exhibitions on various levels and a very good shop, which it is impossible to leave empty-handed. Should be on everyone's list for a visit.

No need to visit the museum, but nice to walk around. It's possible to go to the rooftop to have additional city view :-)

Beautiful exhibition place. Had not been there for many years and now 4 interesting exhibitions at the same time. Even on a rainy evening Paris is a great visit

Staying in Les Halles

Neighborhood Profile
Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris, Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it houses the main shopping mall, which nestles underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and international restaurants coupled with beautiful churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.
