We squeezed this in at the end of our break, but I'm really glad we found the time. I'm not always the biggest fan of modern art, but I enjoyed this. It's a huge collection, with some thought-provoking pieces, and well worth the entrance fee. I've visited the Tate Modern in London a few times and there's no comparison -... More

It is a one of a kind museum with an impressive collection of fauvists, cubists, and surrealists, as well as pop art and contemporary works. Apart from the artworks, the building itself is impressive and has one of the best panoramas in Paris from the roof top terrace.

Really, you can skip Louvre and only go to pompidou and Orsay.The architecture of the building and the square in the front are very impressive. The works of art amazingly interesting, and its free for under 25 years old! Dont miss it!

This is a great music for masterful works of modern art, the Brancusi studio reincarnation in the grounds is a must see, it is wonderful. The building itself is a bit difficult and too industrial... A must see whilst in this great city.

Not your typical Paris museum lots of temporary individual exhibitions and artifacts from guest authors. Very interesting and rewarding experience.

This museum is not only amazing because of the art inside, but also because of its history and its crazy architecture. Definitely in love with the inside library as well.

The museum is huge but typically only about half the floors are open while the others are being prepared for future exhibits. Great space with outstanding exhibits. When I went the avant guard films exhibit was my favorite.

If you're a fan of the Paris art museums, this must be on your list to visit. The whole facility is loaded with temporary exhibits requiring a ticket...but with our Paris Museum Pass we could visit the permanent modern exhibit in the 5th floor gallery. Terrific collection including Matisse, Picasso, Giacometti, Rothko, Warhol, Pollack, even letters from Gertrude Stein to... More

We found the building more interesting than the collection. It offers some great views over the Marais area of Paris. Perhaps we visited at a time when there was no major exhibit.

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.
