Visit The Georges-Pompidou, Paris Guide
It is reputed to be one of the most elegant and innovative modern art museums in the world ; so much so that in other cities, such as Malaga, replicas of this museum have been erected.
The Pompidou is located in Beaubourg, one of the most peculiar neighborhoods in Paris, nestled in an even more peculiar building, which will catch your attention and will encourage you to want to know it from the inside: a bunch of colored tubes linked and covered in shiny crystals. This design is the work of artists Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers and is one of the things you should visit the museum for.
At the Pompidou you can find works of all kinds, distributed throughout numerous rooms. The objective of this institution is to preserve the historical memory of the art of our time. In addition to the fixed exhibitions, it offers traveling exhibitions and has a research center and a public library that promote the dissemination of culture in different areas.
