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. Skip the 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. They’re laid out chronologically so not only do you get to see masterpieces but you also get a sense of how art and thought evolved 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.

terrible organization of the Centre Pompidou. Even if you have priority tickets, you end up in a queue with all the others. Then there is no meaning to go direct to the exhibition where there is no second queue: you'll have to wait together with the people who want to see the other exhibition.

Useful because it can save a long line at the ticket office. But you might still have to queue for a popular show like Magritte. The Pompidou's site gave the impression that to avoid crowds evening attendance would be better. On the day I went the opposite appeared to be the case.
