We visited the Pompidou Centre specifically to take photos of the views. The view is great but sadly the clear tube is too grubby to take good photos through which was disappointing. We stopped at George's for lunch - I can't recommend it. My 25 € chicken Caesar really was poor - lacked taste, substance, husbands club sandwich was adequate... More

We felt more relaxed here at the Pompidou as there were finally less crowds than at all the other famous art galleries and attractions. I have been to this art gallery a few times in my life, and have never got over my first impression aged 19, long ago in 1978. I was so moved by both the building and... More

Easy access. Best to take escalator / elevators to Floor 5 and work your way down from there. Plenty to see and with bonus of special exhibitions, some of which are enormous, so you will need to put aside around three hours for your visit.

The Paris museums have some of the best sculptures and paintings anywhere. Then I went to the Pompidou. Art is a pair of pants hanging on a wall with fake plants coming out of the pockets or a room with fabric all over the floor, sewing machines and chairs that move, chairs hanging on the wall, a nail in a...

However I didn't like the exterior architecture because i found it not matching with the spirit of Paris , but I consider this center as a very interesting cultural hub in the heart of Paris , Inside the center you will find several & important cultural institutions like 1- Bibliothéque Publique D'Information which is a very interesting public huge library...

We visited here after the old stand-by museums which was very different in may ways. The building is very interesting and unlike any other museum in Paris and the collection has a great range of modern exhibits.

I am very impressed with this museum. It is as interesting inside as it is outside. The view from the 6th floor is breathtaking. It is very well organised and even impressively shows the number of visitors at the moment. The installations didn't fail to intrigue me. There are english descriptions of all the art pieces and even descriptions of... More

Worth a visit to see the centre itself; one of the first "inside out" buildings. But the views from the top floor are good too, and it houses several modern art galleries. Yes, if you're like me, you might find yourself scratching your head at some exhibits wondering what on earth the artist was thinking, but there are several visiting... More

By far my favourite attraction in Paris. A huge selection of contemporary works including the weird and wonderful. Even if you are not in to art I think you would find it hard to find some of the works on show at least intriguing and thought provoking. A must visit whilst in Paris. The cafe is a rip off avoid...
