Amazing (and free) for kids
Our kids usually dont last long in an art museum without getting bored, but the Pompidou museum had enough to keep them interested. They rode in the long tube escalators, they loved the views, and the exhibits that included video installations. The museum has an amazing kids play area on the second floor. Nice collections as well.
Ugly building, Great museum
Nice, but I would recommend improving signs inside the museum, I got a bit lost. Other than that the museum is great, I recommend for those who like modern art like us
