    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!

  • Dorothy🐾Boo L.
    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!
    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! · October 19, 2012
  • Shirley L.
    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!

  • Social N.
    This is one of the world's leading collections of modern art. Everything from Pollock, to Warhol to Miro are on display in this piece of modern architecture. Definitely a must-see when in Paris

  • Bianca B.
    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!

    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.
    A. · September 13, 2013
    Parisians love to hate the painfully modern architecture of the Centre Pompidou, so the building is worth seeing just to get a feel for the design which has sparked so much local controversy. Read more · October 31, 2011
  • Hype Ain't Sh*t
    Awesome bookstore, great coffe place & restaurant, but mainly, some of the best exhibitions in Europe! Make sure you also check the balconies which offer the best panoramic view in Paris!

  • Ashley B.
    first visit here they were doing a refurb so half the exhibits weren't available [they never mentioned that when I bought the flight tickets!] - second time, all fine - great modern art - unmissable
    Ashley Bovan · May 13, 2013
  • Nilson S.
    Warning: the Paris museum pass doesn't grant access to the temporary galleries (top floor) and there's no warning signs anywhere about it. We spent 1 hour in the line and couldn't get in. Be warned.
  • Sveta N.
    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..
    Sveta Naumova · March 17, 2013
  • Pierre V.
    view from the top of the museum is one of my favorite! there is also a nice restaurant there. if you enjoy modern art and architecture (you do, right?), then you'll love this place.
    Pierre Valade · August 1, 2011
  • Kunal K.
    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.
    Kunal Kalro · June 23, 2014
  • A.
    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
    A. · August 11, 2015
  • Ece C.
    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.
    Ece C · December 20, 2014
  • Enrico A.
    One the most famous museum in Paris, enjoy the permanent collection of modern art or the interesting temporary exhibitions! You can have a great view from the terrasse too.

    The temple of modernity, this building designed by Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers is one of the hottest cultural spots in Europe. Place Georges Pompidou +info:

    Visit their library, bookshop, movie theater and a panoramic terrace. The library boasts a collection of 450,000 books, 2,600 magazines and a large number of new media items. Cool!

  • Morgan W.
    Awesome collection of modern and contemporary art. There's a balcony as well that gives you a great view of the Parisian skyline.

  • Seb D.
    The Restaurant at the top of Centre Pompidou is a rip-off, and has no good food to offer. Better get something outside, but don't forget to take the "Paris from above impressions" with you.
    Seb DnD · February 27, 2011
  • Ieva A.
    A must visit in Paris if you enjoy modern art! They hold many temporary exhibitions that change quite often and their permanent one is worth visiting as well.
  • S Marks The Spots
    Houses the largest collection of modern art in Europe. Great special exhibitions! For a nice break in between exhibitions, you can go to Georges on the museum’s top floor. Read more

    Free wi-fi. Good place to sit and chill for free. Nothing special inside. Interesting architecture. Disappointing view and experience to the top during winter/rainy weather.
    Christine Lo · January 4
  • Sophie T.
    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.
    Sophie Thiebaut · August 26, 2014
  • Marina B.
    What's not to like here? The building is unique, the art displayed contemplates the best representants of modern art and the view from the top is amazing!
    Marina Burity · May 11, 2015
  • Lux L.
    My favorite museum in Paris! Fabulous permanent collection full of Picassos, Chagalls and Duchamps. A must see if you are a Modern and Contemporary art fan.

  • Michael S.
    Won't let you enter with bags larger than airline carry on size. Free WiFi. The views from second highest level are unimpeded by glass, if you want to take photos.

    When James Bond is being shown around Drax's spacecraft manufacturing facility in Moonraker (1979), Holly Goodhead's office is in fact in the Centre Pompidou.

  • Thomas C.
    Since entrance here is free if you're under 26, go in even if you're not interested in modern art. Very cool building and on the top floor, stunning views on Paris.
    Thomas Craenen · February 17
  • Jonathan C.
    An incredible piece of modern architecture, co designed by Richard Rogers, the architect behind the iconic inside out Lloyd's building in London.

    Great peaces of art and wonderful views of Paris! Visit the fountain next to the pompidou for extra outdoors joyful art
    Jameela Ahli · April 26, 2014
  • Claire L.
    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!!

    It would be hard for you not to miss the striking and colorful design of the Centre Pompidou - home to one of the world's leading collections of modern art

  • Urban Cool f.
    Definitely worth a visit, interesting paintings and installations. The restaurant upstairs is very expensive but there you have a super view of Paris

    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. ✔️

    Modern architecture and a good place to discover. Good on site shops for designer goods and books too. Try the elevators too for a good view over the city.

    From Pablo Picasso to lesser known names, from beautiful paintings to modern art installations and you can interact with, this museum has everything.

  • New York Habitat
    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.
    New York Habitat · October 11, 2011
  • Josette
    Spend at least 4 hours - start at the top viewing all of Paris and work down floor by floor to the great gift store at the end
    Josette · September 12, 2015
  • Noosh S.
    Definitely in my all times good list, try to pay a visit if you're in Paris, architecture's my favorite & exhibitions are usually pretty good.

    Enjoy the view and take pictures from the restaurant on the roof! You may see the Tour Eiffel, Sacre Cœur and Notre Dame.

  • Jordi L.
    Amazing building. Nice galleries and artist showing their work. Good restaurant on the top, free nice views too (paying the museum ticket).
    Jordi Llobet · February 16, 2015
  • Nicolas B.
    Nice museum, storyline usually missing, not enough information and the website and expensive prices for the quality... Better going to palais de Tokyo
    Nicolas Bounaud · February 1, 2015
  • Thomas M.
    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.
    Thomas M · November 27, 2014
  • Thomas M.
    Fan of modern art, design and architecture ? Then you came to the right place! On the top floor you have an awesome view of Paris too

    Spectacular modern art collection, great special exhibits, wonderful rooftop cafe and amazing view of Paris
    Josette · September 12, 2015
    Restaurant Georges is a perfect stop off after an afternoon of taking in the art at the Centre Pompidou downstairs. We love lounging on the terrace with a cocktail while we scope the city views. Read more · October 27, 2011

    This museum is fantastic on the outside, as well as in the inside. Loved every single thing. The view from the balcony is awesome. :-)
