Centre Pompidou is a huge complex housing a modern art museum, a library, a music centre and more. The architecture of the building was enough to draw us to it. It is an amazing structure. You will need several hours to explore what is on offer.

I wouldn't exaggerate if i said it's the best thing I've done in Paris, no long lines but i was there in October, even if your are not fond of modern art you will find something interesting to see there

Disclaimer here - I go to modern art museums more to say I’ve “been” and to enjoy the space than for a deep seated appreciation of modern art. Having said that, visiting during July 2020 and associated Covid restrictions: - it’s quiet at the moment and social distancing is easy throughout - the 4th floor is currently in set up mode for an exhibition that opens at the end of the month. Some of the signage is already in place but most of the works and associated podcast isn’t live yet. I’m not sure in “normal” times they’d let the half open/half shut thing work - the podcast substitute for an audio guide doesn’t work. The episodes are too long and general as opposed to focused on the work in question. For instance, the episode you’re invited to access in front of Mondrian’s New York barely mentions the work in 9 minutes - the drinks in the restaurant are expensive, took 20 mins to arrive from ordering and my glass of wine had a lot of sediment in it This probably sounds overly negative - I did enjoy my visit! There are works I find memorable and I enjoyed as much as similar modern art galleries but there’s a lot that could be improved in my opinion

Its great if you're interested in modern/contemporary art. It's quite the massive centre so it may take you a few visits to see it all. We entered using the paris pass and it only let us into the gallery FYI, not the rest of the center. The staff was not very friendly.

I am giving this a 4 star rating because my son and I did not have time to go inside. It was a "must see" of our trip so I wanted to at least get photos of the outside. I'm really glad I did because it was awesome to see the "inside-out" architecture and how they painted each part of the mechanics a different color (green pipes are plumbing, blue ducts are for climate control, electrical wires are encased in yellow, and circulation elements and devices for safety (e.g., fire extinguishers) are red). On our next trip to Paris this will be high up on my list of places to visit. I adore modern art and can't wait to see the offerings here.
