  • 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
Chagall, Lissitzky, Malévitch. L'avant-garde russe à Vitebsk (1918-1922)
Now on - Jul 16, 2018

With its latest exhibition, the Centre Pompidou explores the limitless creativity and experimentation of the Russian avant-garde, zeroing in on three of its most iconic contributors: Marc Chagall, El Lissitzky and Kasimir Malevich. With over 250 groundbreaking works it's a fascinating snapshot of post-revolutionary Russia, when the country witnessed its own identity in a state of flux.

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.

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).

Nice museum, a little bit crowded but really huge exposition. We had a great afternoon there.

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.

Wonderful - hours of beautiful, strange, unsettling art.
