Centre National d'Art et de Culture George Pompidou Reviews
外見に特色があって面白い建物です。 真ん前の広場にはよく大道芸人が出ていて、言葉がわからなくても 各国からの観光客を楽しましてくれる出し物をしています。 小さなお子様やカップルなどと一緒に眺める大道芸は、パリの雰囲気 も無料で楽しめて（多少のおひねりはお支払いしましたが） とても楽しいひと時でした。 more »It is an interesting building with a characteristic appearance.

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! 🖼️ 🖌️ 🎨
