  • 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
  • Our tickets are cheaper than buying onsite and will get you in through the priority entrance!


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. Until the end of January, see a fascinating exhibit on surrealist Belgian master René Magritte!

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.

René Magritte: The Treachery of Images

21 September 2016 - 23 January 2017

There's a famous Magritte painting of a pipe with the words: "Ceci n'est pas une pipe" written underneath. Its title "La trahison des images (The Treachery of Images)", shows how Magritte loved to play with the idea of images as disconnected from the objects they represent.

This exhibition features more than a hundred paintings, drawings, and archival documents. And the collection paints a picture of this enigmatic artist. But is the image it paints really Magritte? No - "ceci n'est pas l'artiste".

Due to the huge success of this exhibition, the waiting lines for the security check have become longer. Aim for a visit at 19:00 between Wednesday and Monday and avoid Saturdays.

I like Pompidou Center, I am more than admirative of the building and of the complex in its variety. The exhibition space is wonderful. However I had two strange feeling the building is getting old and this process is quite ugly. Ca viellit mal!
From the exhibition perspective the confusing par is the combination of exhibition. I was attracted by kolekzia but I was constantly finding myself in side exhibitions.
Thank you

Alas we still had to queue a long time and then could only get to the children''s gallery because the line for Magritte was HUGE and it was the way in to the whole museum which was a big mistake. However my granddaughter loved the gallery.
