As always their exhibits are very well organized and worth going. This one, one the top floor is huge and gives a very good idea of the works of Koons. Whether you appreciate his talent or not, the exhibit is complete and you'll find out who Jeff Koons is. The Centre Beaubourg itself is of course always worthwile visiting.

This is a modern art center, with museum and a lot of activities in, out and around. The building is spacious and bright which makes you feel very confortable inside. Take your time to walk around as there are many galeries divided in two floors ( the last, highest ones).

Very nice museum to stroll around. I personally preferred the 80's till now area, because I like that form of modern art. The temporary exhibition of Jeff Koons was very busy, but cool to see. And as a bonus, a nice view over (a part of) Paris. Look around for the vending machine, left from the entrance. Most people don't... More

Probably lived up to my expectations. If you're not sure like me before you go, don't go. I went mainly because my partner was interested in going along. They too were a little underwhelmed with what was on display. This is a good space for displaying modern art, it was just the modern art that I didn't like. On the... More

There are two distinct reasons to visit this museum; the Jeff Koons display on the top floor exhibit gallery 1 and the spectacular views of the city. First, the exhibition; fantastic is the only word. The display area is well maintained and suits itself very well to the art. The price was reasonable 9 Euro, free to students. The second... More

I came here in June and stopped by again in December hoping to see the Koons and Gehry exhibits. I had a Museum Pass and thought that since the regular entrance fee was 13 euros, it would only be a minimal "step up" charge. The person in the ticket booth said it would cost 10 euros which I found to... More

The view was excellent. Access to tickets was limited to long lines as the auto machines would not accept payments. Staff did not seem interested in helping.

I went here in 2008 so it is a while back, but thoroughly enjoyed it. There was a great exhibition of Miroslav Tichy's photography work and the place overall felt nice and airy.

Went to the Pompidou as it was one of the big museums we hadn't visited yet. Queues were non-existent (which seemed a miracle for a large Paris museum) and used the self-service ticket machine. When we went there were exhibits by Gehry (interesting to see the link between art and a architecture), Jeff Koons (some fanatastic pieces, some odd pieces... More
