OK - I get that this is a modern building - and an interesting one - with great modern art.... but why would you plonk it in the centre of the city where it contrasts with all the beautiful period architecture.
Couldn't it have gone...More
You have to love modern art, but if you do the Pompidou is a mecca and an absolute must see. The building is a very striking space in and of itself - it would be worth a visit even if there was no art inside....More
Interesting building, you can go inside and see the art shops, view of Paris, and the small exhibition downstairs for free. But visiting the extensive museum of modern art is highly recommended. Lots of seating to relax and open in the evening. We went on...More
This museum opened in 1977. There are about 1400 pieces of art to see over here. It's a must do when you like modern art. There was a temporary exhibition of cubism when I visited the museum. On top of the building you have a...More
I love the exhibitions the Centre holds in addition to the permanent collection. It’s worth visiting just for the rooftop views as well. Remember to precook your tickets though to avoid too much queueing.
During a recent visit to Paris i was able to finally able to visit a modern art museum. Entry to the Centre Pompidou was included with the Paris Pass i purchased (only provides entry to the free exhibits, others may be ticketed). The museum is...More
This museum has one of the greatest collections of western modern art anywhere in the world. What a joy. As for the building, it's grimy and looking its age, but it is interesting - you'll love or hate it - and was a turning point...More
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.

Hi Cariloves... Admission to Centre Pompidou is a bit complicated' Admission increases/decreases depending on the number of exhibits open. Also, the list for "free entrance" is long and includes people under 27, teachers, disabled and their "helper" plus many others if you are French. Also, one pays additional fees [which vary] if attending performances/entertainment.. In addition, one can become an "annual member" [which covers 2 people] for less than the cost of 2 visits!! The admission centre is on Metz!
I hope that this was helpful.

While it's possible that they've added a special exhibit on the top floor since we were there at the end of May, I did not see such an exhibit. Having said that, we ran out of time while touring the 4th floor, which houses the permanent contemporary exhibits. It definitely was not on the 5th floor, which is the modern art part of the museum. I also just tried to Google a Beatles exhibit at the Pompidou Center and nothing came up.
I reckon that the best way to "pre-book" is by doing so "on line".... Check the web site(s) as they have proven to be quite reliable! Booking when at the Centre Pompidou is also time consuming and is... More

I hope that this has been useful!!
My husband and I have both been to Paris numerous times however in May we have the chance to spend one day in the city centre with our children for the first time - kids are 3 and 2. We have booked to hire bikes with child seats (we are keen and experienced cyclists) and wondered if anyone would recommend a good route (or has any other tips) to follow which is easy to cycle and would allow a good overview of the main sites. We would like to include a good playground at some point in the...More

That's incredibly helpful, thank you so much, will sit down later and look at it properly with the map linked above but that sounds ideal for us - thanks for taking the time to post!

Louvre, Pompidou, St Eustache (2 Replies)
I am trying to fit Paris into 3 days - I know tight fit. Can I do the Louvre, Centre Pompidou and St Eustache in 4-5 hours? Thanks
April 29, 2013|
Depends entirely on you. The Louvre is huge, but if you just want to see the highlights you can get in and out of it in under an hour. The Pompidou enthralled us for 4+ hours alone on our last trip to Paris, which totally surprised us as we're not big fans of modern art. St-Eustache is a fairly easy drop-in. But really, it all hinges on what kind of art fanatics you are, your interests in the particular offerings, and your schedule. If that's all the time you have, build a schedule, plan...More
Free first sunday of the month at Centre Pompidou (11 Replies)
Hello, is it possible or necessary to reserve a ticket for Pompidou museum on the first Sunday of the month when entrance is free? I'm asking you because on official site I was asked to pay full ticket price for free Sunday. Thank you.
July 28, 2018|
Do not think you can reserve a ticket for free, it is first come first serve on the first Sundays. We found smaller museums a better bet as the large well known ones were very very busy while some of the house museum were not at all crowded.
