Centre Pompidou - Review
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.

Centre Pompidou, Paris Reviews
Personally, I'm not a fan of "modern art" but there is something for everyone here. It's a huge place though so give it a good half day and wear comfy shoes! It's an intriguing building too, like it's been turned inside out with all the pipes and utilities on the outside, quite iconic. There's a superb rooftop restaurant too with staggering veiws over Paris, but bring money, lots of money! Food was an event in itself though to be fair. We had a great day here.
The center includes a vast public library, a research center for acoustics and music, and some of the best views of the city. Take in what you like, but don't miss a chance to visit the top floor and take in the Eiffel Tower and rooftops of the world's most romantic city. And the Place Georges Pompidou in front of the museum is noted for the presence of street performers, such as mimes and jugglers. In the spring, miniature carnivals are installed temporarily into the place in front with a wide variety of attractions: bands, caricature and sketch artists, tables set up for evening dining, and even skate boarding competitions.
The Pompidou Center is rather ugly, but undeniable a classic piece of 70’s Bauhaus-architecture with blue, green, red, and yellow colors. The impressive white exoskeleton looks extraterrestrial. The advantage is that the outside steel structure leave room for a column-free indoor experience. The museum has a lot to offer in terms of photography, paintings and a must-see collection of contemporary art. The square outside is a very popular casual meet up for locals and tourists. Buy a drink at the Minop’ supermarket and soak in the Parisian atmosphere.
Centre Pompidou a must see. Once. First of all, this is a review for the venue, which is good! I was more impressed with the building than the art inside of it. About the art: yes, it's subjective. There were pieces that impressed me, and pieces that impressed upon me, but I found a lot of this modern/postmodern stuff was excessively obtuse. If you haven't been, definitely go once. But don't expect to leave, saying "I can't wait to come back." Unless, of course, there's an exhibit coming that you really want to see. In which case, this is a wonderful venue to see it!
A must-see in Paris! It is 180-degree difference from the traditional French museums. Stand/sit on the piazza and analyze the building. Get on the "caterpillar" escalator and go to the top for great views. Find a collection and roam around. We used our Paris Museum Passes for entry which cannot be used for entry to exhibits but we don't feel like we missed anything. I can't wait to go back and see more. I recommend more than 2.5 hours if your time allows.
