What to expect

Experience art in a different way at the Pompidou Center, with its stunning collection of modern and contemporary art. Daring architecture, astonishing artworks and spectacular views over Paris await you!

Follow your expert local guide on an immersive visit through one of the most exciting collections of modern art, spanning the years from 1905 to 1965, and a fascinating and thought-provoking collection of contemporary works from the past 50 years.

This extraordinary building, like many of the artworks shown inside, was decried when it first burst into the world, and yet is now recognized as one of the iconic buildings of Paris. The freedom that the Impressionist artists you may have seen at the Musée d’Orsay fought so hard for is expressed here in all its spectacular creativity.

See masterpieces by Picasso, Matisse, Dali, Duchamp, Chagall, Andy Warhol, Man Ray, and many others, learn how they pushed the boundaries and broke the rules, questioning the forms and meaning of art as each of them brought something new into the world. Your guide will explain the groundbreaking artistic movements that questioned how we see the world, representing it in new and innovative ways, and help you interpret and understand the sensational, and often controversial artworks.

You’ll also step into contemporary works by living artists, and find yourself transported inside the minds and emotions of these forward-thinking artists as you not only see but feel and experience their work in new and surprising ways. It’s a perfect museum for families - kids and teens will love this visit - and diving deep into these works can be a great introduction for them to the wonders of the artistic world.
