Centre Pompidou

Europe’s largest collection of Modern and Contemporary art (oh yes, there is a difference!) is housed in a building that was one of the most architecturally daring of the 20th century. The building features the plumbing and piping on the outside and Picasso and Pollock on the inside. And to top it all off, from the rooftop you’ll find gorgeous views of Paris and the Eiffel Tower.

The Centre Pompidou is one of Paris's 'Big Three' museums - the other two are the Louvre and Musée d'Orsay. The Louvre holds art and artifacts from up until 1848. The Musée d'Orsay contains the world's greatest collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art, all produced between the years 1848-1914. The Centre Pompidou holds 20th century works (created after 1914).

Hello. Purchasing tickets was easy and allowed me to completely avoid very long lineups to this fabulous museum. I came and went and came back again with great ease. And what a terrific part of Paris to be in. Highly recommended. Cinq étoiles, mes amis! Steve, Canada.

Amazingly diverse collection of modern and contemporary art. We saw many works we had wanted to see in person, and discovered others we were unfamiliar with. The items within the gift shops were probably the most interesting we'd seen in a Paris museum. Just avoid eating in the main-floor cafe, as it was the first sub-par meal we had in Paris (a city of amazing food).

If you like modern and contemporary art this is a wonderful museum to visit. I was moved by the Yves Klein work (and I never thought I would be!) and my partner loved the Marcel Duchamps pieces. The view from the museum levels is awesome and the temporary exhibit was great too.
