We visited the Centre Pompidou mainly to see the building but we were very impressed of the excellent and huge Contemporary Art Collection that they have. The staf is not very friendly but do not waste your time asking, just grab a map and enjoy all the exhibits

I love modern art. Wherever I travel, if there is a modern art museum, I visit it. This one was the most inspiring one and the place where I could see some of Kandinsky's work from 10 cm distance.

The queue was incredibly long (I think it took me about 2 hours) but it was worth it. The contemporary collection is very well curated and fascinating. The Dali show was on when I was there - an extra ticket and hour wait but I loved it anyway.

I had read that the Pompidou Center was great for kids. Not so. My kids were 8, 9 and 11 and they were not impressed. It really is a place for people who are interested in modern or contemporary art. The kids didn't understand it and I am generally not a big fan of this type of art. The kids were immensely bored. The multi-tiered escalator didn't even hold their interest for long. We spent about 40 minutes in there and the kids were very glad to leave. Luckily the Museum Pass covered the admission and kids are free.

I have always loved to this museum. Kids love riding up the escalator and it’s so educational to follow the different colored tubes to understand how a building works. The art museum is arranged chronologically which is really fantastic especially for those without an art history background. They do not have “too many” paintings on display but rather a sampling from each artist. While I would like to see many more paintings by my favorite artists I understand what they’re doing here. There used to be a cafeteria on the top floor with great views of Paris , but that has been replaced by an expensive restaurant. Go up to the top for the views anyway!
