Oh what a stunning place. We spent our whole visit on the 5th floor and loved every minute. We have been studying art history via The Great Courses. Really enjoyed seeing up close and personal the works we have enjoyed on dvd.

I enjoy modern and contemporary art--but was absolutely exhausted and unable to absorb all that the Pompidou had to offer after about 3 hours. It's massive and has lots of wall space for large pieces, and areas to create distinct exhibits. The Cy Twombley exhibit was huge; I could have used more information in English to more thoroughly appreciate it,... More

I took a class in modern and contemporary art in college, which was one of my favorites. Upon visiting this museum, I could identify all the different periods and styles in painting and sculpture. It's a fantastically organized museum full of very valuable art. Might be my favorite in the world!

There some Spectacular Views all across Paris at The Pompidou. Also an excellent collection of Picasso and other modern artists. The Pompidou is a can't miss Paris Experience.

I didn't enjoy my visit to this museum. The galleries felt very separate and broken up. The floors are so separate, and I just didn't like the way some of the collections were displayed (and hodge podge of artists together). I thought this would be a high point, but I don't think I'd go back after this visit.

This building became a legend as soon as it opened in 1977, France's first international collaboration. It's a multicultural centre, which houses the Public Information Library, the largest museum for modern art in Europe; and a centre for music and acoustic research. It's a building to enjoy, with marvellous views from the top. I'd recommend it to anybody, but the... More

The City of Paris' extensive collection of modern art is housed in this modern museum, and it's a very impressive collection. Fabulous special expos are often held here. The art history library has an excellent reputation. I'm not particularly fond of the brash loo-at-me architecture, but it has transformed a neighborhood to a place where crowds come and linger.

We had a team dinner at the terrace of this place and it was a different experience. You can view Norte Dame on one side and Eiffel tower on the other. They have made a nice red tube escalator so it is easy to follow that and get to the top of this restaurant. But since this is open terrace... More

Staying in Les Halles

Neighbourhood Profile
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 just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.
