Best time to visit
After 19:00
  • Explore the innards of an inside-out building that's considered one of the 20th century’s most radical high-profile architectural achievements
  • Peruse Europe’s largest collection of modern and contemporary art and take in 20th-century masters like Picasso, Max Ernst, Kandinsky, Matisse, Man Ray and Francis Bacon
  • The top floor looks out onto the Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame Cathedral and Sacré-Coeur Basilica. They’re some of the best views of the city, and gazing out onto the rooftops of Paris is a wonderful experience

Much maligned when it first opened, it took people some time to realize that the Centre Pompidou wasn’t a monster, it was simply new. Radically new. It’s fitting that this rule-breaking building hosts so many iconoclastic modern masterpieces. Join the priority line and get right into a building that wears its innards on its exterior.

Slap bang in the middle of Paris, the Centre Pompidou is best described as a building turned inside-out. Utilitarian features like plumbing, air vents, and cables form part of the external façade and it’s all rendered in see-through glass.

That sets the stage for the groundbreaking art inside. Start on the top floor and take in the various isms: Fauvism, Expressionism, Cubism, Dadaism, and Surrealism, all laid out chronologically over the course of the 20th century. Along the way you’ll see works by Picasso, Man Ray, Chagall and many, many more.

From 1960 onwards, the works shift from Modern to Contemporary. Andy Warhol is the most recognizable name, but art by luminaries like Richard Hamilton, Dan Flavin and Louise Bourgeois will also make an impression.

The center also includes a vast public library, a research center for acoustics and music, and some of the best views of the city. Take in what you like, but don't miss a chance to visit the top floor and take in the Eiffel Tower and rooftops of the world's most romantic city.

André Derain 1904 - 1914. La décennie radicale (4 October 2017 - 29 January 2018)

This exhibition explores the 'radical decade' in the life of renowned Fauvist artist André Derain. Derain was known for defying expectations, so you can bet that his 'radical' period is truly out of this world!

The pre-war decade was when Derain earned his reputation as one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. La décennie radicale charts his life and work throughout this tumultuous period and displays some of his most iconic and well-known pieces.

Cosmopolis #1 (18 October 2017 - 18 December 2017)

Starting October 18th, the Pompidou welcomes the first edition of its Cosmopolis program, which provides a new platform for artists to gain and share knowledge. Prepare for interactive installations, inspiring debates, and genre-defying performances - as 15 international artist collectives explore collaborative creative practices from Asia, Africa, and Latin America.

César: The Retrospective (13 December 2017 - 23 March 2018)

20 years after his death, the Centre Pompidou is celebrating the work of renegade industrial sculptor César with this special retrospective. Bringing together over 100 of his most provocative works, this new exhibition shows the development of his inimitable style and highlights his persistent critique of capitalism and overconsumption.

Definitely buy priority tickets. The line was long but moved quickly and the wait time once inside was minimal. The Pompidou is worth a visit on its own - travel to the top floor on the external escalator so you can see the views of Paris u file beneath you.

Perfect. Still a little queue at priority, but still crazy good. If you're into modern and contemporary art - which may be hard to get for some - this is the place to be.
Oct 23, 2017
It was rainy day so this option was very helpful because the line was to long for waiting.
