Pompidou Centre

The  Pompidou Centre was designed by the Italian architect Renzo Piano, the British architect couple Richard Rogers and Su Rogers.

Through out the year numerous exhibitions take place, among the permanent ones, visited by millions of people (over 25,000 per day!) who come from all over the world.

The museum also houses the Bibliothèque publique d’information, a vast public library, the Musée National d’Art Moderne which is the largest museum for modern art in Europe.

The square in front of the museum, place Georges Pompidou, is known for the street artists such as mimes, singers who perform for the crowds, especially during the weekends.
