    Great selection of modern and contemporary art. Works by Mattise, Picasso and Kahlo can be found here besides other works that track the 20th artistic movements from cubism, expressionism to dadaism!

    My favorite! Great architecture, a huge collection of Modern Art and an amazing view of the city on the top floor. This time, the exhibition devoted to the work of René Magritte was très magnifique!

    Take the multi pass : many museums & no line ups which can be crazy like at the Louvres...also, visit for the afternoon & finish at the rooftop to enjoy a fantastic view of Paris in the sunset. Voilà!

    The museum is amazing BUT the bathrooms need work and the food in the cafe is overpriced and sub-par ... Also it is rather crowded but well worth it if you like I love modern and contemporary art!

    Quite a few Henri Matisse pieces, a couple of Picasso works but I love Ten Lizes by Andy Warhol most (4th floor). Also amazing Henri Cartier-Bresson exhibit through June 2014!

    The Pompidou Center hosts the largest museum for modern art in all of Europe. Try the entrance located at the back for a quicker entrance into the National Museum of Modern Art!

    There are various galleries within and you need a lot of time to see it all. Get the ticket to see everything even though you don't plan to, it gives you access to see the most amazing view of Paris.

    If you're not in the mood for the art, definitely pay €3 to go to the view of Paris at the top! Amazing view!!

    If you love modern art it is the place to be, but you have to wait for everything. There is lots of chaos in the cloakroom, make sure you have ticket for the museum before you stand in line.
  • Gamze A.
    This building is a good sample of typical and modern architecture. When you start to walk around the building you can see exhibition and historical places at the same time. ✔️

    It was an impressive permanent collection of modern art, the exhibitions are great and the view of the roofs of Paris on the highest levels of the building is marvellous. Awesome museum!

    In a very unique building, this modern art museum has some of the world’s best works, but visitors often miss the panoramic view from the balconies.

    Such a nice bird's-eye view on Paris from the 6th floor! Awesome! Also sometimes it's faster to enter if you buy the tickets right here. The line with ones with tickets was much longer today..

    A building that houses the most underrated art collection in Paris. For what it's worth, the art was inspiring and I had more fun here than I did in Le Louvré by a long shot.

    Always changing and always the same, the Pompidou has a great permanent collection and temporary exhibits. Don't get put off by queues, walk straight up if you're not interested in a specific show.

    Modern art museum with free permanent collection (don’t queue, just walk in). The statue of Zidane and Materazzi is in the forecourt. The restaurant on top is mainly worthwhile for the view

  • Becissa 💫 B.
    Queues every where. You wait in queue to enter the building, to buy a ticket, to the cloakroom, to enter the exhibitions, to enter a special exhibition (Magritte ~45 min). Apart from that it is fine.

    Always remarkable exhibitions, try to visit in the morning and use "billetterie automatique" which is also available just before the entrance of the galleries, to avoid waiting in line.

    Enjoy the exhibitions and make a reservation in time for the restaurant at the roof. Combine it with a walk around Les Marais. Maybe you'll meet a famous artist.

    For just 3€ you can enjoy a stunning view from the roof top. But you should really consider to spend 13€ and visit the exhibitions.
