|About these ratings|
The Centre Pompidou is one of the most visited cultural sites in Paris. But keep this in mind—and recent travelers attest to this—if you're not a fan of modern art, you probably won't enjoy this museum. But if you do appreciate art moderne, you'll probably love the Pompidou. It's all modern and contemporary art—even its exterior is a little "out there," with its insides (piping, plumbing, elevators, escalators, etc.) exposed on the outside.
Inside the inside-out museum, you'll find a massive complex of art museums, a reconstituted studio (the Brancusi Studio), a library, rooftop restaurant, two cinemas, and one theater among many more gems. Even if you're not interested in touring the galleries, you should swing by to see the Centre Pompidou's colorful fountain installation, located near the main entrance.
The Centre Pompidou welcomes visitors every day except for Tuesdays from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Admission to the museum is €11 to €13 EUR ($14 to $16 USD) for adults. To learn more about what to see and do here, visit the Centre Pompidou's website.
