"Great View, Very Modern Art" Le Centre Pompidou Tip by Aleyd

Le Centre Pompidou, Paris: 137 reviews and 245 photos

There are great views from one of the sides of the centre.

The best way I can describe the modern art at the Centre Pomidou is to say that many of the pieces do not fit the traditional idea of what art is. I found the collection definately challenged my ideas of what art is or should be. There was only one piece that captured my imagination, which reminded me just how personal a thing art is.

I found it quite difficult to navigate around the centre and find what I was looking for.

All in all, I really enjoyed the view, but the artworks were not to my taste.

I'd only recommend visiting Centre Pompidou if very modern art is your thing, as there are plenty of other places where you can get nice views.

The Centre Pompidou is open every day from 11am to 10pm, except Tuesdays and May 1.

Adult entry is E$10.00
