The museum is open afternoons only (at least in Winter) and is free. It is a reconstruction of Brancusi's studio (atelier) complete with many of his sculptures which were in the early 20th century revolutionary. If you are into 20thC art history it's a must - allow at least 40 minutes. It's at the front of the Pompidou centre.

Just beside the Centre Pompidou is the Atelier Brancusi Musee, which is free for the public to visit. Here you can find a reconstruction of Constantin Brancusi's studio and workshop as it was at the time of his death in 1957. Fans of the Romanian sculptor will likely consider this a highlight visit while in Paris. Others not familiar with... More

This is a tiny museum right next to the Pompidou Center. It has a good collection of Brancusi's work, plus his workshops and tools. They seem to have a somewhat contentious relationship with the Pompidou, but they are very good natured about it.

Brancusi Atelier is the first thing I wanted to visit in Paris. I'm Romanian and seeing his work anytime is an emotional experience for me. Renzo Piano created this space to replicate the original space but with more space to visit and enjoy Brancusi work.

I like to visit the Atelier Brancusi every 2 years or so. I´m always amazed by Brancusi´s work and discovered something new every time. Visit it first before going into the Centre Pompidou.

These are Brancusi's own words. Visiting his studio recreated at Centre Georges Pompidou, you have a chance if not to fully understand the true complexity of his personality, work, method, aspirations at least to come closer to the life and creation of one of the greatest artists of 20th century.

Brancusi probably doesn't need no presentation, since his sculptures are so well known around the globe. You'll find there a small place, sometimes crowded by students, who'll charm you. And it's free. 5*

The recreation of Brancusi's studio gives an insight into his work, his working method and the working life of a modernist sculptor in a beautifully presented showcase. Apparently visitors used to be able to roam amongst the exhibits, but now, quite understandably for a highly visited, free museum, they are all behind glass.

I visited this place because I am Romanian and I thought it would be interesting. And I was right. The place is small, you won't need a lot of time for your visit. The walls have pictures and the story of Brancusi. Behind the big glass walls you can see some of his artworks. If you like art, you should... More

The place is trying to represent as close is possible the workshop of the Romanian sculptor C. Brancusi. Really easy to find, 200m from subway 30m away from the Center Pompidou and free of charge. The exhibition is only open in the afternoon.
