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.

One can often find musicians and artists perform or draw in the street around this museum.
Iconic place to be! Take care not to get lost in the entrance (as there are two: one for the library and the other for the museum upstairs). You will some of (the most?) innovative pieces of contemporary art! 🖼️ 🖌️ 🎨
