We came to the Centre Pompidou to check out the modern art museum. The building itself is interesting from the outside. Quite unusual, and the escalators in the hamster tubes made for a good view. However, when you enter the building it looks like an enormous warehouse, with its cement floors and little design that I can recall. The modern... More

I love the museum for the views from the rooftop and the beautiful Matisse paintings in the collection.

It was very interesting experience to visit Centre Pompidou. Some Contemporary art pieces are very interesting and challenging for conventional wisdom. It was mind opening experience for us, young and old. There are some hand-on exhibitions. My kids loved it. The view at the balcony was very nice.

The Centre Pompidou is an interesting building and the views are really beautiful from up on top. We arrived as the sun was setting and got gorgeous views of the city and my first glimpse of the Eiffel Tower in person. Besides the views, there was not much to see in the way of art as most of the wings... More

If you want a great view of Paris, le Centre Pompidou is definitely the place to go! The only place better, in my estimation, is Sacre Coeur. The building at Centre Pompidou almost looks as if it had been built for a carnival or an Expo with a sci-fi theme. If your sightseeing time is limited, don't bother; however, if... More

But I like the enclosed escalator to the top - this is an excellent idea - you can leave that. What did poor old Georges Pompidou do wrong to deserve this to be named after him? They say that if an individual can not make the obvious decision - form a committee. And here a committee of 3 came up... More

From the restaurant at the top floor you get an amazing view over Paris. Ohly that is worth a trio to Centre Pompidou. If you like art books there is a very good bookshop. And then there are of course the exhibitions, but they varies over time.

Modern art is not our thing, but we enjoyed passing by the building and taking photos. I'm sure that if you liked their exhibits, you would enjoy them. We, however, liked more historic art.

An interesting gallery. The modern works of Kadinsky were my favourite, but I also enjoyed the installation art. The view of Paris from the 4th floor is an added bonus. The gift shop provided me with many souvenirs for family back home.

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.
