We went to most of the Art Museums in Paris but the Pompidou Centre was the best. I like the transfer from old to new and the modern art was exquisite! I am so happy when I see that Modern Art has a place in our society and that someone is prepared to show it to the world. The coffee in the local shop was also very good. Please make sure that you put the Center on your itinerary, it is worthwhile.

Beyond amazing! Yes, he had some rather strange theories, but what a brilliant artist! Unfortunately, this exhibit closes on 25 Mar 2013. But if you're in Paris, be sure to see this! (lines are very long...go early in the day). And the remainder of the Pompidou is well worth a visit, too!

Bought tickets online and went during a time period that was supposed to be not too busy according to the official website. Waited 30 mins outside in cold in what was supposed to be a 'priority' line for people with tickets, then went inside and upstairs after tickets were scanned to find another huge line of an hour or more so they said we would probably not see the expo before closing time 1.30 later! Nevertheless, they were still happily selling tickets without telling anyone about the line inside and kept reminding everyone of their 'NO REFUNDS' policy.

Greedy and French disorganisation at its best (and I live in France, so I am usually well prepared for this, but this is a new low. So we never saw the exposition. They should sell tickets with a time slot and restrict sales. STAY AWAY

I visited the Pompidou Centre on my last few days in Paris and realized almost immediately what I had missed. The building is unique and stands out from any other in Paris by virtue of the fact that it is built inside out. There are tubes through which you get from one floor to another. There was a long queue, and it took about half an hour to reach inside, but the wait was worth it. So many different ideas, projected in different mediums. One could spend so much time there. I suggest visiting it alone so you can spend time with pieces that catch your fancy.

there is always a current exhibition on offer,but the view from the top of the escalator is worth the entrance price.The permanent displays are excellent for lovers of contemporary art.The cafe on the first floor is a relaxing place to watch the comings and goings below.
