Centre Pompidou

Museum Paris, France

A great (he)art within an industrial body Centre Pompidou

In 1969 Georges Pompidou changed the Beaubourg area of ​​Paris into a cultural center with a museum and a creative hub. There, in 1977, a pioneering centre was inaugurated, designed by the celebrity architect Renzo Piano,

The "industrial" aspect of this building in the heart of one of Paris' oldest neighborhoods is curious for tourists. We are talking about a surprising, original and impressive architecture. In the external part you can see all the functional parts of the building: elevators, stairs, tunnels and tubes of different colors. Each color associated with a duct has a precise function. On the 4th and 5th floor there is the MNAM - the National Museum of Modern Art, one of the largest in Europe. In the gallery you can admire different styles: from ready-made to pop art through fauvism, abstract art and surrealism. There are the masterpieces of the best european painters: Matisse, Picasso, Kandinsky, Chagall, De Chirico, Mirò, Duchamp, Warhol and many other genial artists. On the 6th floor you find the temporary exhibitions and the panoramic view over Paris.
