Named after the president who decided to launch this new cultural centre dedicated to modern art, the museum is exotically futuristic: it’s escalators, water pipes and air conditioning have been moved outside the building to make more space for the art inside. Initial opposition faded after the Centre opened and became an instant hit. Culture lovers who visit are treated to an incredible museum, a vast library, a bookstore, a movie theatre, a musical institute and a panoramic terrace. The square in front of the centre enjoys its own popularity, frequented by mimes, street portraitists and entertainers. The centre is also known as Beauborg.

This museum is fantastic. It is located close to where I rent an apartment so I go here often. Exhibits change frequently and the courtyard out front is popular with French youth. Cool spot. The adjoining fountain area is popular for outdoor picnics on the benches and catch the rays. Great street art too.
Nice place to visit. But keep it as secondary plan. However you may enjoy during your visit. Visit will take minimum 2 hrs. Museum pass gives you basic entry. Don't spend extra. Better visit with the given entry level permit and later buy ticket if you need.
If you can only visit two museums in Paris, see the Louvre for historical art and the Pompidou for modern art. Even if you're as clueless about modern art as I am, you're sure to recognize the names and pieces in this museum. It's huge and open at night, so it's a good place to spend a few hours before/after dinner.
Massive queues on this national holiday - it helps somewhat to buy tickets online, but the queue is still long. The cubism exhibition was very good. We had the children with us so only saw that and part of the permanent collections. They preferred the latter as it us more varied.
I don't know what is better - the building itself or collections inside. Great experience, I wish to have more time. There is a pretty long queue to the entrance but no need to affraid. It goes fast.
