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 - Write a Review
One of Paris' great museums! Plan to spend some time. There's a lot to see. You may not like what's on display, but there's no accounting for taste. The views over the city from the top are the best. Much better than the nosebleed views from the Eiffel Tower. And there's a restaurant outside up there, good for taking a break. Even in popular exhibitions, there's plenty of room to move around.
My favorite museum in all of Paris, & my favorite modern art museum (although the MET may be tied) It is a Modern Museum in an incredibly unique building. I would suggest taking the escalators straight to the top floor, & taking in the sites - you can see all of Paris from here, even the hill of Montmartre. Quite beautiful. This floor dedicated to revolving exhibits, which is always quite an interesting experience to take in. There is a restaurant on the top floor, where if you eat there, you can go out on their terrace & enjoy the view (if you're not dining, you cannot go on their terrace). Go one floor down & explore the incredible collection they have of modern artist from the past. They allow you to take photos of the art on this floor, (no flash) so document your favorites! There is also a great balcony to the right, when you first arrive on this floor, where you can go out & take some incredible photos without the glass in the way. The restaurant terrace previously mentioned would be directly above you, so prime spot for photos! Then go down one floor below, & explore their collection of the current modern art of our time. All in all, this is a wonderful museum that I would highly suggest any lover of more modern art to visit.
Really enjoyed the more modern art you can find here as supposed to the other art you can find around Paris. Definitely a place for art lovers to visit as there are many different artists work there. I took my mother here and although she appreciated the art she was not a fan of it. I would say it is more favourable for the younger generation.
If you are into your art then you will more than likely enjoy the Pompidou. I've never really been into art and to be honest I found the actual building to be much more interesting than the exhibits inside. It's described as an inside out building and is pretty cool with a great view of Paris from the top. The good thing about the Pompidou is they have their own app you can download to your phone so no need to pay for an audio guide
'Cultural Centre' what more can you say! People flock there when the sun is out just to sunbath and to listen to the street entertainment on the piazza outside, and also when the sun isn't out. It actually reminds me of Covent Garden, in London, twenty years ago. There are loads of good hip and cheap bars and restaurants on its doorstep, and lots of cool people! Inside is everything you'd expect of an iconic cultural hub: great exhibitions and great views of Paris.
