"Pompidou Center - dingy & dull plaza" Centre Pompidou Tip by rexvaughan
Centre Pompidou, Paris: 2 reviews and 3 photos
Maybe it is unfair to call this a tourist trap, but the day we visited we found very little appealing about the center. Granted, we did not visit the National Museum of Modern Art which I understand is a collection of great 20th Century art, but the center itself is purported to be a great gathering place. Maybe we hit at a bad time but there were few people about, the plaza was just a huge concrete area and the building itself seemed a bit dingy. As a matter of taset, I do not find the building attractive or appealing at all. Of greatest interest were the statues by Nikki de St. Phalle in the pool, especially when viewed with the old church in the background contrasting the old with the new.
Unique Suggestions: Go inside to see the museum. I am sure it would be worth the time.
