What to expect

The Pompidou Center houses some of the world’s most exciting modern and contemporary art, and on this 2-2.5 hour guided tour, you will learn about the collection with a spirited guide. The building itself is an iconic landmark in Paris, and you’ll find out why it looks like it’s still under construction — but don’t worry, it’s very much complete!

Step through the doors of Renzo Piano’s controversial building, seemingly turned inside-out and painted in strikingly vibrant colors. After hearing about the museum’s creation, follow your guide through the modern art collection, featuring some familiar names among the nearly 3200 works. Discuss Cubism in front of a Picasso painting, or Fauvism next to a Matisse. Move forward in time through the World Wars where surrealists like Dali created their best work, and where the Dada movement came into existence. Check out a few Warhols while learning about the Pop Art that defined a generation. Explore moments like Bauhaus and Abstract Expressionism with French artists as well as international names like O’Keefe, Pollock, and Mondrian.

In the contemporary art galleries, you’ll be introduced to lesser-known works by more recent artistic movements like Fluxus and Minimalism. Experience works like Dubuffet’s winter garden installation, allowing you to walk through the creation. By the end, you’ll have a complete overview of the art world that even the Louvre can’t give you.
