Surrounded by 11,000 sq m (36,090 sq ft) of glass, the postmodern Centre National d'Art et de Culture George Pompidou is an art gallery, an acoustic research center, and a vast public library.

The center’s art curators have assembled a marvelous introduction of conceptual art consisting of approachable works that are sure to delight, amuse, and entertain. After you browse each of the building's seven floors, be sure not to skip the fine restaurant by the Costes brothers on the roof.
