Meet your private guide at Centre Pompidou to begin your exploration into contemporary art.

In the heart of Paris, among the oldest buildings of the French capital, stands this imposing structure of iron and glass, wrapped in colored tubes, elevators, and escalators. The 'industrial' creation of architects Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers, Centre Pompidou shocked the Parisian public when it was inaugurated in 1977, and today it's one of the symbols of the city.

With your guide, learn about the history of the building and everything in it, including a public library, an institute for acoustics and music research, the Stravinsky fountain, numerous cinemas, a photo gallery, several exhibition spaces, and the atelier of sculptor Constantin Brancusi. Visit the top of the building for a view of Paris, and hear about the avant-garde of the 20th century.

The second part of your tour focuses on works from the 1960s to the present day. Walk through the modern art collection for an understanding of the whims of contemporary artists.
