You will need most of the day to get round everything. The entrance fee is higher than Musee d'Orsay, but it is still good value. There is an awful lot of information about the paintings and artists so you can learn a lot. The cafe is a little pricey and not particularly good, so I would recommend eating elsewhere.

We started on the roof terrace,which give a great view to the west including the Eiffel Tower andSacre Coeur. The is a roof restaurant, but no view when you are sittingdown. you do get some interesting pfoto ops for the Eiffel Tower and Mont Martre. The art is on the fourth and fifth floors. y start on the fifth and... More

I appreciate that this was one of the few places in Paris without a line in July. The entrance was free on the day that we visited. I would say you can spend 1-2 hours here looking at the art. This isn't my favorite museums in Paris, but still worth a visit. Fun activities in the lobby area for kids.

I have been to Paris before but this was my first visit to this great museum. Very different from the others and you will enjoy the many varied exhibits. We took time to make sure and eat our evening dinner on the rooftop overlooking Paris at the restaurant here. It too is a not to be missed experience while in... More

architecturally a magnificent building, but it's the quality and variety of the artworks that keeps you coming back time after time. everything is perfectly displayed of course but for us the highlight is always the art of the early 20th century. A must

Architecturally there's lots to see! And, you won't be disappointed if you love modern art. Before entering the buil riding the outside escalator to its multi-level art galleries, you're sure to enjoy the ambience. Local artists, including the zany, unusual water features as well as the building itself will surely captivate your imagination.

As a real appreciator of Modern Art, I couldn't leave Paris without visiting Pompidou Center. Frankly speaking, I wasn't expecting anything majestiс about this place - all I wanted was just to tick it in my list of must-see places, even though my friends couldn't wait to go there. Now I must admit that Pompidou Center impressed me like no... More

I really enjoyed the Pompidou museum... but, then again, I actually LIKE contemporary art. The almost industrial architecture of the museum could be off-putting, but I thought t was interesting. Very good views of Paris from the top. The collection was interesting and engaging and full of creativity. (Perhaps this was my favorite museum in Paris because there were fewer... More

The building is the star of the show, but it's starting to show its age. Built as an architectural statement in the late sixties, it looks like it is inside-out, or still under construction - all the mechanical, electrical, fire and water supply systems are on display. It houses the major public library for Paris, as well as an exhibition... More

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.
