The building itself is art. Great collection inside and the ticket is good value for money as it also included access to exhibitions, not just the general collection. Great space inside and a great view of the city from the top of the building.

Pretty scary escalators but most everyone seemed to be enjoying them. Amazing views. Elevator is too the left and seemed less hair-raising. David Hockney is really popular and it's an extraordinary body of work with lots of mesmerizing art.

Fantastic building!! Once you understand where to go, you can enjoy this unique structure. Indeed, the staff is not very helpful. It seems they think we should already know where everything is. Putting that aside, the exhibitions are impressive. I really enjoyed the modern collection,...More

I loved this gallery. Has such a wide range of art. Was disappointing that they were renovating a few levels so was smaller and busier however look forward to going back when they have finished. The view from the top floor was excellent as well!

The Centre Pompidou provides a very interesting modern contrast from the more historic sites of Paris and it is definitely worth a visit. The outside escalator provides ever improving views until you reach the roof. Once there, it is worth spending a little time to...More

Love or hate the building, this is one of the top museums of modern and contemporary art in the world. Currently, there is a major David Hockney show and that alone is worth a visit. It runs until just after mid-October 2017. The permanent collection...More

Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris,
Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but
the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it
houses the main shopping mall, which nestles
underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and
international restaurants coupled with beautiful
churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to
it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and
