Expert review of Centre Pompidou
Roger's and Piano's Centre Pompidou was a landmark in high-tech architecture when it opened in the 1970s and I still get a thrill every time I take the escalators that climb up the side of the building. The Musée National d'Art Modern on the 4th and 5th floor is the largest collection of modern and contemporary art in the world after Moma in New York, although only a fraction gets shown at a time, but you can be sure to find masterpieces by Picasso, Matisse, Brancusi, Beuys or Klein, videos and installations by young artists, photography and design. There are usually two or three temporary exhibitions on at a time on the 6th floor and mezzanine galleries.
10 to 12 euros for the museum and all exhibition spaces; free under 18s; museum free for EU nationals under 26; panoramic view only 3 euros.
