Like the Tate and the MoMA, this is a must-see. Piano made future with the Centre and at any time you can find much going on. It is always worth the visit, especially given the low entrance fee (especially compared to the Louvre, Uffizi etc). Nice view from the top, Calder's mobile on the bottom. The Arab kids on the...

This is one of those places that you really should get to so that at a minimum you can say you went there :). How much you enjoy it will be very dependent on your taste in art, when we went the exhibitions were quite average but I'm sure they change regularly. It is very interesting to walk around outside...

Quite a bit disappointed, the Koons exhibition was great, Level 4 weird disappointing stuff .... And the best on Level 5 is all shut until May 2015 .... If you are into modern "art" from the last 30 years or a Koons fan - go for it ..... Otherwise save your 13 euro for a better deserved gallery or museum... More

Great exhibitions, interesting building with a gorgeous view over the city! Great money value (only 13 euros for all the exhibits and plus the city view).

If you are into modern art you should appreciate this but not for me! Very 'way out'. Nice building though.

Loved the cool exterior. Fun place to hang in front with live music and entertainers. And best of all exhibits that are fun and unique and at times interactive. Our favorite modern art museum we have seen anywhere in the world including the United States museum and the Tate Modern. Included on museum pass too!!! Beautiful restaurant on the top... More

I went to the Pompidou Centre in October 2014. It was very busy, and there was a long queue to get in. I would not want to go there during peak tourist season. I bought a ticket to go to the top for views over Paris. The escalators were not all working which was annoying as they are one of... More

Centre Pompidou is a contemporary museum located in a futuristic building that resembles a factory, which won't appeal to everyone, but it is surely an interesting choice of architecture design for a museum. It has some 5 or 6 floors, but at the time of our visit, not all of them were open for public, but even if they were,... More

This is a so-called modern building but not very pretty and does not seem to belong to the Parisian landscape. The line to get in was not long and it is quite spacious inside so you can walk around the numerous halls without bumping others visitors. All in all it is a nice big museum... The price reasonable (€ 13).

The Centre Pompidou is a must see in Paris. Interesting architecture and a very beautiful inside space. Good museum for modern art. The restaurant at the top is also very ice - giving beautiful views over Paris. Highly recommended!
