The temple of contemporary art

Going to the Centre Georges-Pompidou in Paris, France is always fun! It is a futuristic building in the heart of Paris, close to the Hôtel de Ville. If you get inside you’ll find free WiFi, a bar, a nice art shop, a children’s art playground – but this museum is a playground for humans of all age.

When I was there some table tennis tables where arranged in the middle of the museum. If you want to enter the museum you have to get up to the first floor to access the escalators that bring you to the top. There two art galleries show changing exhibitons and you can enjoy stunning views on the city (even if the windows are not clean enough to take pictures).

One floor down you’ll find a great exhibition of paintings of various styles and periods. And then – one floor down again – there is the section for contemporary art. Different artist, often with political messages, are on display and you’re always suprised about the always changing exhibits.
