Centre Pompidou

Paris Centre Pompidou front

If you like your modern art, you’ll love a visit inside, but it’s the outside that’s our favourite bit of this building.  All the functional bits like pipes, lifts, escalators etc are on the outside.  Great fun! Metro stop Châtelet.   This is an extract from our free Paris City Guide.

There are a number of permanent exhibits and temporary exhibits at the centre but all are rotated frequently so that every time you go to Paris, you should see something different.  Centre Pompidou is open every day except Tuesday from 11am to 9pm.  Adult admission to all exhibitions and floors is 13 Euros, with concessions available (2012 prices).  Under 18s are admitted free, but you’ll need to take your passport or driving licence.  The cinema and performance area have separate admission charges.  Admission is also free with the Paris Pass.  The Heart of Paris Bike Tour calls in at the Centre Pompidou.
