Founded by Georges Pompidou, this 20th-century museum houses
modern and contemporary art in all forms. The architectural
design of the building itself suggests what lies within. Escalators
on the outside of the building take visitors between the floors,
with the exhibitions on the sixth level and the permanent museum
on levels five and four. French collections from the beginning
of the 1900s to the present day are showcased in chronological
order, including modern art, contemporary art, graphic art,
architecture and design, photography, new media and films.
There are also 1,400 works by great artists who built modernism,
including Matisse, Picasso and Miro.
Don’t miss the Atelier Brancusi, located next to the
Centre Pompidou. The building contains the contents of Constantin
Brancusi’s studio, including a collection of the artist’s
work, tools and personal possessions. A museum ticket will
gain you entrance here.
Pompidou also offers various shows, including theater, dance
as well as cinemas and Ircam concerts (the
Ircam is a musical research institute). There is a restaurant,
café and a cafeteria, several bookshops and a design
gift shop. There is also a cloak room, post office, automatic
teller machine and telephones.
