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.

It’s an amazing museum you must visit in your life. There is a lot of things to see. And also different exhibitions from time to time in the museum too. The view outside of museum is fantastic and beautiful as well. Highly recommend. It’s very busy museum, better to buy ticket before you go, otherwise will be a long queue.
Truly amazing space, definitely something to visit to view the latest in art as well as its conception. Expect to see big names in the art world. As an artist myself, its the perfect place to come to be inspired. Remember to leave your bags and coats in the coatroom before your tour. Do look for a tiny boulangerie outside. The museum opens only at 11am so a great baguette helps while waiting.
Over all it is good but that’s not sufficient to describe the place. It’s a huge museum with permanent and changing exhibits. The permanent exhibits are many, varied and nice - perhaps too much to take in all at once. Some would find it too large and intimidating. The changing exhibits were average, but I suppose that’s just my view. Obviously, there are huge crowds so there are some hours that are good to go in and others when everyone else is also trying. I have usually found the evening hours, typically after 6pm the best time to try and visit. The outside area with fountains and greens are nice.
My favorite museum in Paris. The Cubism/Picasso exhibit that was on the top floor was incredibly well put together. I've never enjoyed reading all of the plaques as much as I did in this gallery - all of the writing was in French and in English. The contemporary/modern art floors are A LOT. We went through the top 3 floors in about 3 hours
Excellent museum that showcases modern/contemporary art. Expect to see the beautiful artwork, the bizarre, and the scary. There are 4 galleries each with different themes. Along with the Louvre, I would say these two are the only museums that must be visited in Paris. Visiting any other museum is just an added bonus.
